Our great desire has been to reflect the excellence of the Redwoods of years past. The gleanings in literary effort we have striven to make as repre- sentative as possible. Our chron- icle contains what, in the fullness of a college year, seemed most important and most worthy of recording. Cherishing the hope that we have kept faith with the past and that we are true to the present, we submit to the reader ' s kindly judgment the Redwood of 1925. THE EDITOR. leMcatton To Martin V.

His earliest works are his choicest When the pulse of youth throbs in his brush, His gold tints he steals from the sunset, His red from the dawn ' s maiden blush. His silver is filched from the moonbeams, His green from the banks of the rill; Ah, how deftly he blends them together With patient and marvelous skill. Such the tints that he used in my childhood When the world was a bright fairy land, All light without trace of a shadow, He painted with masterful hand. But alas! now his colors are fainter And his background is somber and gray; I see that his interest i s waning And he ' ll soon put his canvas away.

There is an ultimate reticence in the man ' s fullest, most eager, confession; not conscious delicacy so much as an essential reserve in his nature. Where he stops, it is not only speech that is silent: the experience which he seeks to ex- plain meets his efforts by discreetly denying the word, even to thought ; it is a silence of the mind. How then shall he tell us the secret of his soul, when it is not unsecret to himself? A divine jealousy guards this sanctuary: only the priest may enter and look — even he cannot understand. To know thus the limits of candour — to see the inarticulate mind groping, not so much after the mysteries of the mind, as after some hinted, secret sense to take hold upon these mysteries — suggests to the critic that he be cautious in his approach to any book. The critic must come prepared to allow more in the man than will appear in the book. For he knows that not the brightest of words will discover the soul ' s mystery in its dark place; and yet no word comes to him quite free of that sense of nearness to a thought unexpressed, waiting upon a word unuttered — the mystery perpetually implicit in this language of exclu- sion. The poet has a word of just reproach for the ungenerous critic: " Then I am small indeed, if words will say me. " And how should we expect words to have said Papini? We are apt to put too large a significance into the circumstance that the Life of Christ followed shortly upon Papini ' s turning to the Church. We may permit ourselves to find in the Life a reflection of Papini ' s experience; it is in finding the entire experience, that we wrong him. For Papini may pass, indeed, behind the veil, but the veil is still there, and the place " must still be greatly dark. " And when, out of the shadow of that with- drawn sanctuary — that ground over which he passed intent, to find in inmost dimness the waiting Church — when he returns forth into the clear light of simpler communions, how much will he recall, or recalling have words to tell? There is a charming fitness in the refusal of such things to become unsecret: the note of secluded intimacy in them sound- ing in the figure often-used — that the neophyte encounters the Church " like a bride " . If we find, then, in Papini ' s picture, a Christ not filling the measure of our conception, foreshortened and disappointing, yet neither is He that compelling Christ whose attraction called Papini from atheism. Papini simply cannot echo the call, as we cannot in ourselves detect its particular voice — its way really unknown to us, Save only how it shivers through; The breast of us a sounded shell, The blood of us a lighted dew. 22 One, whom the book vexes into metaphor, voices the capital objec- tion to Papini. " Having discovered Jove in a thatched hut, is he not in- fernally concerned about the thatched hut? " And the criticism sug- gests a further: Papini does not rise above the level of the thatched hut; his deity is not divine — the strong hand is not there, that hand which strowed forth the worlds in their sowing; nor the beauty, so dreadfully absurd in mean surroundings, harking back so poignantly to the heav- enly courts. And the objection is not light; to have expressed a thatched hut may be an excellent success for the artist; but the hut was there yesterday; tomorrow, we doubt not, it will be there — meanwhile, the heavenly visitant, a moment stopping, has gone. The first chapter, on the stable at Bethlehem, is a case directly in point. Papini has the knack of making vivid discoveries about what he describes, simply by being perfectly accurate; as when, having fol- lowed the scythed grass from the hillside and sun into the manger, he is able to see " the animals take it slowly with their great black lips " . And he makes the place intensely realistic — " this earthly pig-sty, where no dec- orations or perfumes can hide the odor of filth " . They say the chapter is more striking in the Italian, which enforces ugliness with the spiteful sibilant. No doubt it is very strong. Still, Papini might have spared us the ugly things, having a good example for the omission. It is only St. Luke, of the four evangelists, who mentions the circumstance of the stable at all, and then he mentions it quietly, in one sentence: And she brought forth her first-born son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Economy is here, not of the lips merely, but also of the eyes them- selves, unwasteful even of a glance; graciously austere beside the prod- igality of Papini in passing the same way. Papini is an example of what may be done with a hint: the stable posited, he produces a description which, if excellent, is nevertheless clearly gratuitous; St. Luke, indeed, gave us the stable — one might almost say it had not been dirty until Papini gave us that also. But nay! second thought is sure Papini gave us nothing: describe a stable, forsooth — insist upon the nose of Cyrano! Now Papini may fairly be said to have drawn such an opinion down upon his own head, but we misgive but we must look in another quarter to justify the virulence we use in putting the opinion forward. The truth is, Papini had never offended us with writing of thatched huts, had not several critics praised him for so feckless an achievement. — As if the apprehending of externals had ever been hard ; or as if praise were not good enough to be earned! — Certainly we should expect in Papini a concern reaching beyond mere externals, since, with the externals of Christ, were not the Jews, after all, excellently acquainted? And it is written that Christ wept over Jerusalem, to whom it was given to see the Son of Man in her streets — and to spit upon Him. And better than 23 Papini, really, could the Roman soldier have described Christ, as he pressed forward to strike Him in the face. Doubtless it was a scoffer who, amid the unexpressive crowd, found and exclaimed that ultimate word on Calvary ' s ultimate wretchedness: " Vermis non homo " — " He is a worm and not a man. " He could not have heard the answer from the Cross: " Behold, how I have loved you. " Papini was a scoffer against the Cross, before he joined that Church which is of the Cross. It is curious to see him — among the crusaders, and pointed the other way now — but still scoffing. He has changed sides, but not weapons, and he uses the sword Intolerance to cleave his enemies. This is a doubtful way of getting rid of the enemies, for — to change the figure — Intolerance is frantic and the enemy is calm, Intol- erance is impulsive and the enemy has taken thought. It is doubtful, too, if Papini ' s attitude encourage reliance. The suggestion — however ill-founded — is of one not yet proven and sure. " Why hasten thy speech ? And do you not trust that truth will surely be heard at the end, even to the last syllable? " What we have said, be it remembered, is what the art of letters may have to say about a work whose object, after all, is not artistic, but apos- tolic. Like St. Paul, the book has travelled far and done good. If it has not escaped a share of Paul ' s buffetings, in the form of criticisms, it can yet turn them to its own profit. Art chastens to save, and though it even chasten here, does not presume, but has a place and an authority over the prophet even as over the poet. Was it not the use of words that the Paraclete inspired the apostles? The apostle preaches, and preach- ing is an art. Then, if art detain the apostle, who would pass on to his great business, it is yet not for her own selfish vindication, but in order that she may minister to him, to make his good better — find words for him, lest truth itself be unheard. —Albert J. Steiss, ' 26. 24 3% JlSaicIjer bg ti t £ m Lone is my heart as I scan the sea; Hear it roar like a beast of prey! When its savagery dies it is weird and low, And it speaks in an awesome way Of its hate---in a menacing way. Fiercely it leaps on the rock-ribbed shore, It is bursting with lust for wrong. Yet my fear grows less when it ceases to roar--- There is pity, then, in its song, In the wild, wild strain of its song. When the moon comes down in the arms of night, O ' er the myriads whom life has fled, To dance in glee on the waves, its light Mocks the ships and their frightful dead, All the sunken ships with their dead. Long years have passed, yet day after day I watch on the cliffs by the sea. O savage winds, O ye waves, I pray, Bring him back once again to me, Oh, restore my beloved to me. — Richard Hassler, ' 28 25 ©lb frfrofrttclj LD Petrovitch ' s wife was dying, but he took no interest in the matter. As he sat by her bed he felt no sense of grief, for one thing filled his soul to the exclusion of all else — hatred, hatred of Russia his fatherland. Nor was his hatred without cause. He had once been a man of importance, had risked his life more than once in the service of the Czar. But he had listened to the voice of love, love for this woman whose life was now ebbing fast, a woman fair of form, in youth, and vir- tuous, but of peasant birth; and the way to honor had been barred to him, and his friends had abandoned him and his Imperial Master had forgotten him. He might drift along a non-entity, but Russia would never know him more. When their child was born, he and his peasant wife carrying with them the remnants of his fortune, abandoned Russia, hoping on a sheep ranch in far off Queensland to obtain forgetfulness and peace. The first years had brought a measure of success, for the difficulties of his new life absorbed his attention and the love of wife and child were balm to his heart. But as time went on and his struggles diminished and leisure gave him more opportunity for thought, the past came back with all its bitterness and aroused to fever heat the slumbering passions of his soul. His very wife and child added to his torment. In her lack of culture his mind found no response. He had thought to lift her to his mental plane; he found by experience that he must sink to hers. When he spoke of his wrongs she would listen with patience and a degree of sympathy. But there were two thoughts rooted in her peasant mind that prevented any approach to a perfect accord between them. To her the soil of Rus- sia was ever sacred; and the thought that the Little Father could do wrong was ranked with blasphemy. His courtiers, his counsellors and officials might be scamps; yes, she had known some of them; but the Little Father she had reverenced with unquestioning faith from earliest childhood. Nothing could shake her confidence in him. That she her- self had been the source of trouble made but a faint impression upon her. She herself had bettered her condition by the marriage; she had never known ambition save in its most primitive and elementary form. All else eluded her grasp and puzzled her brain. Why worry about things that could not be mended. Her husband was a good man but his ideas were strange and his temper uncontrollable. The boy naturally grew up in the care of his mother. He loved and esteemed his father, but he saw hi m in great part through his mother ' s eyes. Moroseness does not attract the heart or inspire confidence. The fits of Petrovitch therefore cemented more and more the sympathies of mother and son. The child grew up devoted to the sacred soil of Russia, 26 and the Little Father was the idol of his heart. His father had suffered injustice he knew, and if it ever depended on him he would right those bitter wrongs; but where could he do it better than in his mother ' s land and in the service of him whose every thought was for the welfare of his people? Petrovitch had overestimated the influence of his intellect upon the boy to whom he had often spoken of the degeneracy of Russia; he had overlooked the counterbalancing of early prejudice, and mistook respect- ful silence for the assurance of conviction. The boy was approaching seventeen when the father ' s eyes were opened. It had been a warm day and he had thrown himself on a lounge by an open window. A veranda vine-trellised cast a grateful shade and he was soon asleep. When he awoke he heard voices outside, his wife ' s and his son ' s. He had no intention of spying. His nature was too noble for that, but he lay there in idle listlessness, too indolent to move. What he heard, however, set every nerve pulsing. The conversation was of Rus- sia, its glorious past, all its greatness due to the rule of the Little Father. Frantic with rage, Petrovitch sprang from the lounge, and leaning out through the open window, gave full vent to the passions that con- sumed him. The last tie of affection for his wife was snapped. She had not only brought him ruin and exile. She had made a traitor of his son. Some excuse there was for the boy; there was none for her. In the fu- ture let her live or die. She was nothing to him. Then came the great war. It was a triumph for Petrovitch. Russia was drawn into the vortex — Russia corrupt to its core. He gloried in its shameful defeats. At last he was avenged. The despondency of his wife and son was an added pleasure. " Now, " he thought, " they will know their sacred Russia and the con- temptible beast that desecrates its throne. " His heart, however, was not happy, for the bitterness of hatred never gave him rest. Russia was suffering. Let it. Worse was to come. Let it hasten its pace. His false friends had fallen. It was justice long delayed. The Czar— The door opened and his son stood before him. " I come to bid you good bye father, " he said. " I am sorry to pain you, but Russia needs me and I must go. " Petrovitch was for a moment stunned. Such an anticipation had never entered his brain. He who usually was fluent of tongue was deprived of the use of speech. But it was only the calm preceding the storm. " Go! " he cried, " go, ungrateful child, with a father ' s curse upon you. " The young man paled but his resolution was not shaken. " I must go, " he said. " It is my duty. May that and my mother ' s blessing avert the curse. " The head of Petrovitch sank upon his breast as his son left the room. He could prevent the going he knew, but was it worth the trouble? Life 27 had been a series of failures; let this last end the list. Life had lost its value. " Besides, " he thought, " if the boy comes back, he will come with eyes opened; if he does not — his death will be upon another ' s head. I shall suffer, but not as she will. " Days and months passed in the desolate household. Ivor had reached Russia and joined the forces. Detached pieces of correspondence passed the censors, but they told nothing of feelings or impressions; they were records of marches and battles and the holding of trenches. Then word came that all was over. The Little Father claimed one life; another was soon to follow. " You have killed him! " was all that Petrovitch said to his wife. " He loved me little, but I would have given him all that I had. " " He did his duty, " she replied. " None can do more. " But from that moment, heart-broken, she began to fail, and the end was drawing near. And her husband sat by her bedside unmoved by her misery. She had brought it upon herself by her foolishness. Let her pay the price. He was thinking more of the grave in Russia than of one soon to be opened for the dying woman. Little mattered it what became of her. She had been the bane of his life. But a sudden exclamation from the sufferer drew his attention. It was a cry of happiness and joy. He gazed bewildered, for the upraised eyes were bright, and the features seemed again the features of youth, and the outstretched arms expressed the yearning of her heart. " Do you not see him? " she cried. " Our Ivor! Have you no welcome for his coming home? How tender his glance for both! Ivor — Ivor! " and she passed away. The heart of Petrovitch was touched. The dead love was rekindled from its ashes. His gaze was earnest and long. The face upon the bed carried him back to early memories, and the darkness of intervening years seemed to roll up and disappear, and with it vanished the demon of hate. " I too was to blame, " he said, " too centered in myself. May God forgive me. " In the famine that followed in the wake of the war, the children of Moscow held one name in benediction. It was only a name, for their benefactor was far away, a broken-hearted man among the sheep-folds of Queensland. —J.

Marius Becchetti, ' 25 29 W t plaster (genius of j mta Clara HEN Theocritus essayed the task of telling of the glories of Ptolemy he immediately encountered a difficulty, which he sets forth at the very beginning of his panegyric, by describing a wood-cutter who goes into a virgin forest on Mount Ida perplexed with choice as to which tree to cut first since they are all of equal magnificence. Ptolemy enjoyed so many glories that Theocritus knew not where to begin in the telling of them, and he says — . . . to what shall I give ' voice First of all the many blessed things With which the gods have graced the best of kings? And so it is in writing about Father Joseph Bayma, S. J. From the time of his birth in sunny Italy in 1816 to his death in 1892 at Santa Clara, California, he did so many and such diverse things, and he did them so well that it is almost discouraging to start selecting from them because just when one feels that he has made a fair choice, up pops something else that simply must be told. Philosopher and theologian, classicist and rhetorician, mathematician, physicist and astronomer, art- ist, architect, and musician — to which shall precedence be given? And hardest of all is to treat of his writings because, before it is possible to talk about a work, it is first necessary to know the work. But who really knows the works of Father Bayma? Who can fully appreciate them? Even in his own day, though the world bowed in admiration, few claimed to be able to fathom them. Copious are the commentaries with praise and reverence, inciting a desire to know more, but here they stop since none, though all offered homage, presumed to take it upon himself to be able to elucidate them. Father Bayma was a tall, well proportioned man of handsome and impressive appearance. In character he was gentle and kind, always loving and always loved, as only so noble a man can love and be loved. When he spoke one was not disappointed for his voice was rich and so- norous and in keeping with his stately presence. His dark grey eyes, which had gazed out so philosophically upon the passing of seventy-five years, ever retained the sparkle which matchless Italian skies had put there, and there dwelt in them a depth that could only have resulted from meditating upon the vastness of the African sands where he had spent some time as military chaplain, or the vaster ranges of science and religion which ever occupied his thoughts. He is best compared to the Venerable Bede, for he, too, " was always reading, always writing, always teaching, always praying " . In spite of his ceaseless labors and tremen- dous research his personality never lost a simplicity and humility that so strikingly impressed all who came in contact with him. 30 His diction in Latin, French, Italian and English was classic; not coldly so, or merely mechanical, but classic in the warmth and sincerity that goes with truly classic thought. His " De Studio Religiosae Per- fectionis " , a little volume similar in thought and style to a Kempis ' " De Imitatione Christi " , is a perfect piece of work in thought and expression. His admirers said at the time of its first publication that it would " live and perpetuate the memory of its author even more than his greatest scientific works. " So profound, so beautiful and so catholic is this work that when it first came out anonymously it was attributed to the Very Reverend Father Roothaan, General of the Society of Jesus, yet it was written by Father Bayma when he was a mere student of theology at the College of the Holy Martyrs in Turin. A philosopher always, he was not one of that dreamy, ethereal kind who with Kekule says, " Let us dream, perhaps we shall find the truth " . No, to Father Bayma the truth was too real and accurate a thing to be found in chimeras or to be the result of hyperaesthesia ; and to perfect his mental processes he devoted himself with all the ardor of his soul to that most exacting of all sciences, mathematics. To him, moreover, mathematics was as the basis of all things, and hence things mathematical were to him pure joys. The ordinary intellect is content to follow the beaten track, but not so the colossal intellect of Father Bayma. Start- ing with the same primitive notions as the immortal Euclid, Father Bayma by wholly independent ways arrived at the same laws and conclu- sions as his world-famed predecessor. Some, and they may be considered authorities, say that while this was a magnificent manifestation of con- ception and creative power, yet it was, on the whole, unfortunate that Father Bayma, instead of going back over the same ground in another way, had not started where Euclid left off and continued on into new fields. That he would have made valuable discoveries seems beyond doubt; but it was ever a practice with Father Bayma to build his own scientific foundations, always starting with the few primitive notions that antiquity had on the subject, and thence proceeding by his own methods to reach the same conclusions and demonstrate the same laws. In Physics, while still in Europe, he calculated certain experiments mathematically that were not only laughed at as " theoretical " , but were even hard to believe when they were first actually seen performed. The principle involving the maintenance of equilibrium while in motion on a revolving wheel was first evolved and demonstrated by Father Bayma, while he was teaching philosophy at Stonyhurst, England, and it was this principle that later was utilized in the bicycle. In aeronautics his discoveries were sufficiently startling to cause certain financial interests in England to take cognizance of the matter. Unfortunately, the mer- cenary spirit in the would-be backers prevented satisfactory arrange- ments. It is, however, admitted by many that Father Bayma solved several of the most difficult of the basic principles involved in aeronautics. 31 As a pastime in applied mathematics Father Bayma issued a little book entitled " The Curves Assumed and Described by a Falling Drop of Water " , all worked out mathematically beforehand and then proved by experiment. A full course in mathematics was completed by him mainly while he was at Santa Clara. The course starts with Algebra, then come Plane and Solid Geometry, Trigonometry, Analytical Geometry, and it ends with Infinitesimal Calculus and Higher Mathematics, the last named be- ing completed just a month before Father Bayma was stricken with his fatal illness in 1892. Everything is set forth in a manner so lucid and so easy to grasp that copies of these books are now preserved by the Smith- sonian Institute along with his tables of logarithms which he had com- piled for use in his astronomical work and had carried out to eight decimal places, and which have since been enlarged by the Institute to the ten place astronomical tables now in use. From the viewpoint of science, however, Father Bayma ' s " Elements of Molecular Mechanics " must ever remain the greatest of his works. It is essentially original and takes one into new territory in reference to matter and its constitution. It is the very basis of what is being learned today in every class in Chemistry and Physics. But it was not conceived as only too many of the present theories are conceived, by mere speculation or a priori methods; it was founded on solid mathe- matical facts and figures as was all of Father Bayma ' s research. When it was first published, Tyndall, who had been the butt of many attacks by Father Bayma, wrote in his masterly review of the work that " it was a century before its time. Not seven men in England can now under- stand it. It must be at once refuted or scientists must forever hold their peace. " Rather great praise, it must be conceded, from one whom the recipient had never spared and one whom the world must ever recognize as a great physicist ! The Universities of Heidelburg, Oxford, Cam- bridge, and Edinburgh immediately incorporated the book in their cur- ricula. It ignores the ancient theory of Epicurus about atoms, rejects gravitation ' s function in the molecule, and follows matter beyond the farthest possibility of microscopic detection. Every molecule is not round, but each has its characteristic shape, starting with Hydrogen which is tetrahedric, and advancing through less simple constructions to those involving higher polyhedric conformations. Father Bayma was not drawing on his imagination in the attaining of these conclusions, for he was able to write after each of them " quod erat demonstrandum " , since they were all reached by mathematical, mostly algebraic, calcula- tions — a feat that modern scientists hesitate to attempt. Father Bayma did a prodigious amount of work in evolving formulae by which the mole- cules of any substance could be measured. For instance, he gives us as a positive mathematical fact that the distance from the center of one molecule of oxygen to the center of another placed in contact with it is 0.0000035494 of a millimetre; and that the number of these molecules 32 that can be placed in a linear millimetre is 281,740. Similar figures for the rest of the elements known in his time are also given, together with much erudite information intended only for the profound scientist. He tells us that the molecules of the diamond are the smallest of all, and that 4,182,447 of them can be placed in a millimetre, or 0.3967 of an inch ; and that in 10 cubic centimetres, or 0.610 cubic inches of water, an amount that would fill a small thimble, there are 3,727,539,016,920,000,000,000,- 000,000 molecules! In this same book he gives his views concerning luminous ether, accepting and proving its existence not as a highly at- tenuated medium, but as having a vastly greater density than air. Its molecules are wholly interiorly attractive, hence they are non-resistant and non-impeding to the passage of planets through it. Color and heat are also discussed, and his ingenious deductions are set forth. Never before nor since has any one arrived at such conclusions by pure mathe- matics, although similar theories have been advanced on speculation. Never yet have his theories been disproved. The main objection to them is that there is an alleged failure to account for inertia, but even if this were true, his principal discoveries neither fall nor stand with it. The work was printed in 1865 by the press of Cambridge University. And now we come to that which meant so much to Father Bayma all during his life, that which seemed to inspire and vivify his work, bringing it closer to Him for Whose greater honor and glory Father Bayma was ever working — music. Thinkers have always regarded music as the art most capable of interpreting the spiritual world and of bring- ing the spiritual and the material into a more intimate union, or, in the words of the " Religio Medici " as having " Something in it of divinity more than the ear discovers. " And to Father Bayma music was the soul of much. At no time in his life was he wholly without it. From his hands we have a book in which any music lover would revel. Full of appreciation of music ' s power and embellished with beauties born of an artist ' s insight, it brings with it a fuller enjoyment of the language of the angels. Nor does his music-loving soul manifest itself merely in appreciation; but it builds an immortal memorial to him in the magnifi- cent expression of the liturgy of the Mass which he composed, Ad Ma- jorem Dei Gloriam. So beautifully is this glorious theme written that Mercadante, himself a master composer, held it in the highest esteem. Nothing is better fitted to glorify God than music. And here let us leave this master mind, philosopher and theologian, classicist and rhetorician, mathematician, physicist and astronomer, artist and musician, in intimate commune with his Master, offering to Him all the fruits of his intellect in an oblation whose grandeur is en- hanced by the humility of the offerer. But not intellect alone did he offer on the altar of Religion; by its side he placed a heart whose sole ambition was the greater glory of his Lord and Master. — J.

Mothers-in-law are always a joke in the funny papers, but mine was no joke to me. In the first place she didn ' t have to live with us. She had plenty of money and could just as well have rented an apartment or even gone to live with her husband, poor man. She seemed to hang on because she knew I didn ' t want her. Moreover, she had all sorts of unpleasant habits. When she was awake she crabbed, and when she wasn ' t she snored. When she ate, she couldn ' t do either, but she could store away a double portion of the most appetizing food. My wife wouldn ' t tell her to go, and I could hardly blame her, for a mother is a mother, and for me to tell her would be a waste of breath. However, I had other ways, I thought, of gaining my point. I decided to freeze her out. When she talked to me I would merely nod in reply. I never smiled when she could see me, nor when she couldn ' t see me either. The social atmosphere was freezing but she wouldn ' t freeze. She had hibernated so often that she had become immune. So I grasped my only alternative, and packing my bag one night when I imagined all were asleep went forth into the darkness. I planned to go for a week to a famous health resort in the mountains. After recuperation there I would — God willing — come back for more pun- ishment. About twelve o ' clock I whispered Goodbye! and softly stole out the front door. I was soon motoring away from it all. I arrived at the hotel in the mountains about three in the morning and at once en- gaged a room and tumbled into bed. I went to sleep dreaming pleasant dreams; I would probably rise about ten, and then have a game of golf or go horse back riding or in other pleasant ways enjoy myself. When I awoke it must have been about nine. From my room I could see the sunlight streaming through the trees and could hear the sooth- ing voices of the forest. What a tremendous change and relief it was! I lay abed for probably half an hour, and then very leisurely dressed and shaved. My head was full of delightful plans for the day, and I whistled a merry tune as I jigged from my room to the elevator. Once downstairs I strolled out on the veranda and down the steps, viewing the beautiful forests which were all about the resort. Below me about three hundred feet was a marvelously clear lake which I looked at with an eye to swimming and rowing. ' Why, " thought I, " maybe I had better stay here two weeks or more instead of one; I fear that I am completely run down. " Being ravenously hungry, I sought the dining room. Taking the 35 chair proffered by the waiter, I ordered in low tones what I wanted. I was so fearful of being taken for a glutton that even the waiter had difficulty in understanding me. But I guess that all things considered I had a right to be hungry. I was just starting my meal when I heard someone behind me in loud tones ordering breakfast. " I was a fool to be so cautious about my order, " I thought, " I ' m only having a snack compared to that lady. " As the menu was read off I sensed something strangely familiar. Where had I heard that order before? I didn ' t want to turn around and stare, but still I yearned to do so. However, I was not puzzled very long, for soon the meal was brought an d the person started to devour it. It was my mother-in-law, and for the first time I heard the voice of my wife! Doubtless my freezing-out treatment had worked, and they also had run away. It was impossible that they were in pursuit, because they must have left too early to discover my absence. I thought quickly. " So, " I said, rising from my place. " I have caught you at last! This is the way you treat a husband who has tried his best to make you happy ! All right, my dear, don ' t cry — you ' re not to blame. It ' s your cursed mother. " With that I turned on her and gave her a few things to understand. " Wait a minute, son, " she said, " I haven ' t finished eating yet. " " As far as I can see, you have eaten everything in sight, " I replied. " No, no, son, " she retorted, " I have some here on my blouse! " I sank limply into a chair. I knew that my wife pitied me, but I knew that I didn ' t deserve pity for having made such a fool of myself in trying to outwit her. Since that day years have fled and times have changed, but my mother-in-law never has. —Charles F. Steiss, ' 28. 36 3% torb of orrofc ' Twas not tke thrust of gleaming blade Nor flight of winged dart; Grief ' twas that rent thy breast in twain, And pierced thy Virgin heart: Till through the bitter rain of tears, Thou readst in face divine Love ' s message to a ransomed world — No sorrow more was thine. — James Twohy 37 fflljikkt, tfje (JHongooss GIFT for thee, heaven born! The snakes of Africa are many and very fierce. And there are human snakes among them. I, Akbar Hahn, who served the great chief long years ago in Africa, know whereof I speak. Will the heaven born deign to accept? " Little eight year old Harry Seton was delighted. This was surely the most wished-for and least expected of gifts — a live mongoose! Memories of suppressed desires flashed upon his young mind as he looked with pleasure from the sad affectionate eyes of the devoted family coach- man to the old African ' s treasured pet and age-long companion. And it was his! Perhaps though only a boy he had an inkling of the great love which prompted such a separation. Harry was leaving the India of his birth in company with his father, the newly appointed commissioner of a frontier district in South Africa. And who can say but that the old coachman ' s gift had been suggested by a foreknowledge of the dangers soon to threaten his little idol — the heaven born? Two years later the Setons had completely entered into African life. The father had been successful in the administration of his district. The only cloud on the horizon was the enmity of old Mbonga, the chief sorc- erer of the tribe. The cures and the justice which the commissioner dis- pensed with equal hand had caused the wizard a falling off of revenue. This in itself would have been enough to arouse the latter ' s hatred, but to have been brought to court on the charge of bewitching a white man was indeed an intolerable insult. It is true that the case had been dis- missed for lack of evidence, yet the sting of such an indignity was deeply fixed in the mind of Mbonga. Only a month later the plan for a native uprising was discovered and frustrated, and shortly afterwards there had been a futile attempt to kidnap Harry Seton. Mbonga was of course suspected as the prime mover in both these affairs, and he was again brought before the commissioner. For the second time he was dismissed after a very severe warning. But this proceeding only embittered him the more. A fire flamed dully in front of a tiny hut. Before it crouched an old negro, withered and bent. Near him was a large iron pot with a cover. A pebble rattled on the ground. The nerves of the old man became tense, then relaxed, but he ceased the weird drone he had maintained for hours. A furtive shadow glided into the circle of dim light and a younger negro dropped to a crouching position beside him. " Thou hast it, Mkemba? " queried the ancient. " Yes, master, it is one of the son ' s, " replied the assistant. 38 " Good, " cackled the wizard. " It will hurt him more in that it is his son, than if it were himself. " Mkemba produced a boy ' s handkerchief. The old man took it, sniffed at it, moved toward the fire, lifted the cover, and dropped the handker- chief into the pot. Mkemba disappeared into the hut and returned with a covered wicker basket, closely woven, holding it as if life itself de- pended on his carefulness. Mkemba inverted the basket over the pot, and Mbonga, chuckling to himself, pulled the peg that held the cover. A black sinuous body tumbled into the pot and the wizard instantly clamped on the cover, taking care to fasten it securely. Then together they took the pot from the fire and crouched chuckling again and again maliciously, as they listened to the thumpings in the heated vessel. It was an old trick of the witch-doctors. The creature inside would associate the scent from the handkerchief with the burning pain which he was undergoing. If released near the owner of the handkerchief he would attack immediately. Chikki the tawny little weasel-like animal given to Harry two years before, was the constant companion of the boy. Rodents of any kind were now an unknown quantity and the house and garden were entirely free from snakes. A few days after the questioning of Mbonga there had been a rumor of his return to the village and as a result Harry had been warned not to venture farther than the garden. On this day the boy was lying on the veranda, while his mother was some ten feet away from him engaged in mending clothes. A tall figure entered the garden gate and strode towards the house. Almost simultaneously a long black form slid out of the bushes about a rod ahead of him. It paused a moment in the path and then glided toward the veranda. The man uttered a hoarse shout and reached for the revolver at his hip. His hand closed about an empty holster. Too late he remem- bered that Mkemba had slipped behind him as he came out of the chief ' s hut. The mamba, most dangerous of all African snakes belying the wiz- ard ' s forecast paused apparently uncertain which to attack, the boy or his mother. Both had risen and faced the danger, but both were par- alyzed, and unable to move. There was no retreat, for the mamba is the quickest of reptiles. The snake turned towards the boy and raised itself to strike. Sud- denly there was a pattering rush, a chattering of teeth and a furry ava- lanche hurled itself on the enemy. The reptile whirled and struck, but quick as it was the mongoose was quicker. Chikki seemed to change di- rection while still in the air. Again and again the reptile struck but al- ways the little mongoose was just out of reach. In and out he leaped, ever seeking to fix his teeth in a vital spot. He seemed like a ball of fin- blown hither and thither by a vagrant breeze. At last there came a pause, each contestant seeming to accept a mo- merit ' s truce, a breathing space, an opportunity to size up his opponent. The father had taken advantage of the contest to reach the house. " Don ' t move, " he shouted, " I ' ve got my shotgun. " At the sound of his voice the mamba turned its head slightly in his direction. Like a flash Chikki was in upon him. The snake struck fu- tilely, at the same time snapping its steely length like a whip in the hands of a cattle driver. Chikki was shot head over heels off the veranda, but he held between his teeth a piece of the reptile ' s flesh. This was the father ' s opportunity and a headless mamba vainly wound and unwound his writhing coils. There was now nothing for Chikki to do but to receive the warmest congratulations for his pluck, which, be it said to his honor, he received with becoming modesty. The wizard ' s part in the affair was unsuspected at the time, but was revealed by Mkemba who hoped by the telling to gain favor with the governor and escape punishment for the theft of the pistol. Search was made for the old reprobate and he was found dead in his hut, having been slain by a mamba ' s bite. It was supposed that the female had traced her companion thither and wreaked her vengeance on Mbonga for the disappearance of her mate. Akbar Hahn knew well of what he spoke: " The snakes of Africa are many and very fierce. There are human snakes among them. " —Milton Huot, ' 28. 40 Wyctt piays of Sarrte ELF-STYLED aesthetes, in hot pursuit along the latest ways of realism and psychology, have called Barrie shallow — piqued they are, one feels, as a misanthrope would be if confronted with a charming person. They grant him a certain simplicity in expression, a poetic sense, wit, and some fantasy — wings, these, surely, for a goodly flight. But they also see him, as Arnold once saw Shelley, " beating in the void his luminous wings in vain. " This is after all the very natural judgment of a school of thought to whom the word 1 " true " expresses the same harsh unseemliness as " naked. " It has not been revealed to them that truth may have charm — nay, that charm is the very radiance of truth; and so, pretending to seek truth, they yet do not know her face. And hence comes their distrust of charm, and naturally their lack of it. It is seldom given to a man to be successful both as a novelist and a dramatist. Yet so it has been with Barrie. Turning in middle life from the writing of excellent novels, he has taken to the writing of exquisite plays. Both have in common a distinction of style and substance, and are evidentlly brothers. If you put your ear to their hearts you will hear them skipping in a most exuberant way, for they are not grave enough merely to beat. This is their inheritance from Barrie. It is really Barrie that is delightful ; it is Barrie, skipping from frame to frame, who is him- self the whole gallery of portraits. His own personal charm breathes forth from his people ; his humor drops sly words in stage directions ; and when he had made Cinderella sad, his eager sympathy ran to her straight- way, embodied — that it might have legs — in a policeman. His humor is everywhere. It is the foundation of his charm. It puts his wit to the uses of sympathy, and with constant, unerring thrusts, as with an unwounding poniard, it seeks out the true heart of things. Humor, some one has said, " is the faculty by which one, having a perfect sense of the proprieties of life, detects at once the bumps and bulgings away from these standards. " Barrie ' s humor discovers profound depths. It goes one may say, to the very reasons of the bulgings. We might amuse our- selves by imagining Barrie ' s creations trying, despite perpetual failure, to hide something from their very creator. But if Barrie, as it were, " finds them out " , it is only to see at once more to smile at and more to like. All this is conveyed to us by a style of singular clearness ; a style that has the limpid simplicity of good conversation — the conversation, more- over, of someone very kind and sweet. Such a style suits the drama particularly well, making, as it does, for natural and expressive speeches, and clear swift action. 41 But the realists, as we have noted, distrust Barrie. He is under scrutiny; irregular habits are hinted at. His critics regard him askance, but closely withal, since they expect to catch him on a flight one of these days, reeling in the fell grip of untruthful fantasy. But if his conduct is not quite ordinary, and it is not, still they trump up too black a case against him. Barrie ' s fantasy really comes to this, that he presents profound truths in a light coating, so that one is fooled, for a moment, into thinking that it is all a lark. But when he whisks the veil away, actual thrilling life confronts him eye to eye. There is for example the description of the Muckley festival in " Sentimental Tommy " . There was a Muckley called . . . after Tommy, but this, his first was dubbed Sewster ' s Muckley, in honor of a seamstress who hanged herself in the Three-cornered Wood. Poor little sewster, she had known joyous Muckleys too, but now she was up in the Three-cornered Wood hanging herself, aged nineteen. I know nothing more of her, except that in her maiden days when she left the house her mother always came to the door to look proudly after her. And the fantasy attaching to the people in such plays as " Dear Bru- tus " , " A Kiss for Cinderella " , and " Mary Rose " , is soon dispelled; and the characters are brought froth as from a wrapping. We know them quickly and with something of our feeling for friends. After all, people who must trudge slowly to the truth, should not grudge Barrie wings for flying there, even though he remain in the ether- eal element " from dawn ' s first light to the coming of night " . He arrives at the truth, in any event; and perhaps he will beg pardon for having to be pleasant. The first blot on Barrie ' s scutcheon was " Dear Brutus " . In this play there is a wood which appears on a Midsummer Night. The wood is the land of " what-might-have-been " , wherein we behold those paths in life which were not taken. The characters are a group of week-enders. There is the philanderer who has an affair with a woman in the party, while his wife watches. There is the termagant, dissatisfied with her marriage, and the husband who wooed her as an ambitious artist, but who now drinks. A little old man is continually heard to bemoan the fact that be- cause he has a wife to bother with, a book which has been his life-work for twenty years, is still in its first chapter. They all enter the wood — and behold what-might-have-been. The faithless husband is married to the other woman, but is now having an affair with his wife. The termagant has made a different marriage but apparently an ill one as before, for she appears in tatters, begging, with a familiar bitterness. She has not married the artist, certainly, for he is joyously painting in the moonlight, and a charming daughter — alas, she is only a might-have-been ! — is flitting about him. And enter the old man, unmarried. This has left him free to complete his life-work, and it is yet in its first chapter! Just now he is chasing a butterfly. 42 When at length they have all returned from the wood, one of them — the philanderer — finds the " mot juste " , from Shakespeare: The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings. " A Kiss for Cinderella " is as delightful a flight as " Dear Brutus " . Cinderella is a poor little waif, with an exquisite soul. One almost feels that, had nature so decided at the last moment, Cinderella could have been made over quite easily into a bird. To do her bit for England she has undertaken the care of several war orphans. One of these happens to be a German, and Cinderella, in her efforts to acquire a necessary knowledge of the little one ' s language, attracts the attention of a London bobby whose faculty for suspicion has been abnormally developed. He enters Cinderella ' s lodgings, hostile and disguised. First the disguise comes off, to Cinderella ' s horror; and then the hostility comes off and Cinderella, unaware, has found her prince. Now Cinderella for quite awhile has been forecasting to her tiny charges the coming of a fairy godmother to take her to the ball. At length, though her assurances to the children have been indefinite, she can put the event off no longer. " It had to be some night, and this is the night. " She shows the policeman out, and when the children are asleep, she goes outside to sit in the snow on her doorstep, in order that the fairy godmother may not pass her by unnoticed. And then to poor little Cinderella, undernourished and overworked, her mind wandering in her exhaustion, there comes indeed the " invite " to the ball. It is the most charming ball in history. In no language, and in no generation of children, has Cinderella ' s wish been granted so graciously as now. Just before the snowy doorstep fades away to melt graciously into the brilliant ballroom, the godmother appears. " Now, " she says, " let this be the ball of my downtrodden godchild, not as balls are, but as they are fancied in a little chamber in Cinderella ' s head. " The lovely dream begins, and we see the ballroom. " Nearly everything in the ballroom is of gold . . . You can see that she has not passed by gin-palaces without thinking of them. " As Cinderella has never seen anything more luxurious than a rocking chair, the royal throne is furn- ished with rockers. Above the throne, in what resembles a box at a the- atre, sprawl Cinderella ' s orphans, all " Shouting, pointing, and otherwise behaving badly, eating oranges out of paper bags, then blowing out the bags and bursting them. The superb scene is lit by four street lamps with red glass. " But fully to describe the glorious scene, which culminates of course in Cinderella ' s conquest of the prince, who looks strangely like the po- liceman, would involve an unpermitted prodigality of quotation. Twelve o ' clock comes, and the ball vanishes, and some time afterward, Cinder- 43 ella awakes in a nice white bed in a hospital. We glance at her and leave her with but little hope. She is very weak, and is more bird-like than ever; she seems — using Barrie ' s prase — to have " lived too quickly. " The new play " Mary Rose " sounds farther depths than any former work. Mary Rose is a whimsical girl, her fancy and caprice mercurially swift yet gentle; altogether a character amusing and charming. We are scarce introduced to her when we learn that we have been forestalled, since she has already an accepted suitor. He appears in the sitting room, come to interview her parents. They insist, before considering his mar- riage with their daughter, upon revealing to him a secret in Mary Rose ' s life. They tell him that when she was ten years old, they had taken her on a holiday to the Hebrides. While boating on the coast in her company, the father had been attracted by a tiny uninhabited islet close to the mainland. They landed, and when the father put forth again he left Mary Rose on the shore happily painting a picture. A little while later he returned, but the girl had disappeared, and though the people of the nearby village made a thorough search, they found no trace of her. Two weeks later, her father, passing that way in his boat, beheld her on the shore, sitting just as he had left her on the day of her disappearance. Questions revealed that she was unaware of the lapse of time, and her parents, to spare her what they had suffered, resolved to conceal from her this strange interlude in her life. The suitor, however, scoffs at the happening and communicates with Mary Rose by tapping on the ceiling, for she is awaiting upstairs the pa- rental decision. But the islet returns into the story after the marriage. The place had remained a sweet childhood memory with Mary Rose and she begs to re-visit it. With her husband she again crosses to it from the mainland, and is in rapture when she recognizes the very spot where she sat and painted in her childhood. The two eat lunch together and chat. Then for a moment the husband ' s eyes are turned from his wife. At that moment the call comes and a sudden unseen force sweeps Mary Rose away. This time she is gone for years. Her father and mother have aged, her husband is turning grey, and long ago her son, an infant when he lost her, has run away from the motherless home. But once more she is discovered on the island, unchanged and unconscious of the passing of the years. She comes home, and tries to pick up again the thread of life. But she is forever an exile from the present. Fight hard as she may to get back into the world of reality, the cold movement of the interven- ing years has made things, done things, so strange and tremendous, that she cannot. The meaning of the play lies deep under the words. Thoreau sug- gested it in the trenchant saying, " One world at a time " . The call of the 44 islet is really the call of another world; we all hear it, and are all allured by it. To everyone, at some time or other, the obligations of the world as it exists grow irksome. Everyone is tempted to deny the real relations that exist between himself and society ; to violate laws ; to model his life according to a mere figmentary plan ; to be in a special sense unworldly. But the answer to all this is absolute and conclusive: Social relations are facts, and facts always vindicate themselves. Now the realists cannot justly deride this sort of thing as superficial. Indeed, should their insistence provoke comparison, Barrie will be seen to have overpassed them in what may be called — not quite accurately — " their own game " . Barrie ' s view of life is as deep as theirs, but it is wider. Not he, after all, who knows the phenomena of life, but he who like Barrie reaches back to first principles can be said " to see life steadily, and see it whole " . J. V. Asod.

It is always hard to say goodbye and more so when the truest of true friends must be left behind. In Alma Mater, the class of ' 25 has found a friend indeed. Regard- less of who they are, or whither they may go, this year ' s graduates will never know a greater assistant than the old mission college whose por- tals they are about to leave. Santa Clara has given to the men of ' 25 what she has given to the seventy-four classes that have gone before them — her all. No one can give more. She has spared no effort, she has lost no opportunity to prepare them for the great battle of life. She has enlightened their minds, she has inspired their wills and above all me has given them what few men possess — a true aspect of life. There is every reason to believe that these efforts have not been in vain. If vve may judge the future by the past, success will surely crown the en- deavors of the class of ' 25. In student activi ' ies its members have al- ways been to the fore. On the athletic field, o:i the platform and on the itage they have more than done their part in upholding the traditions jf Santa Clara. On all occasions they have shown themselves to be ever ready and willing to do whatever was within their power for the greater honor and glory of the Red and White. During the course of their stay at Santa Clara the members of this class have witnessed many notable changes in and about the campus. The open fields that met their eyes when they matriculated four years ago are now occupied bv imposing structures. The tottering landmarks that for well nigh fifty years had composed the University, they have seen passing before their eyes. A new and greater Santa Clara has sprung into existence. In these four short years she has made greater strides than most other colleges in the nation. Throughout this epochal period the class of ' 25 took a prominent part, and it is with a feeling of pride and joy that it points to its efforts, small though they were, in bringing about the reconstruction of Alma Mater. To those who are to follow, the class of ' 25 leaves its best wishes and the highest hope for success. To those who have labored so un- ceasingly and untiringly to make this seventy-fourth commencement possible the class can only offer its humble thanks and its sincerest gratitude. The benefits it has received from them are above and beyond recompense or mere earthly reward. Though distance may separate the members of this class physically from one another and from Alma Mater, they shall ever remain joined in spirit by those bonds of loyalty which unite all true sons of Santa Clara regardless of where they may be or in what walk of life they may have entered. 51 EDWIN E.

" -.-: a--A.-: a 68 Ptyere tljc |Jabres Eotlefr, 71 1924-25 Bramaites Foreword The dramatic history of the year may be summed up in two words, " Martin Merle " . When Mr. Merle arrived last fall to take charge of dramatics every- body was delighted. " One thing is certain, " said the Student Body, " with Martin Merle at the helm the dramatic season is bound to be not only a success, and a credit to the University, but to dramatics at large. " We may say, therefore, that his coming was the greatest dramatic event of the season. The Dramatic Art Contest, the Vaudeville and Minstrel Show, received as a fitting climax the " Light Eternal " ; but worthy of praise as they all were, and brilliant as was the manner in which the actors took their respective parts, it was plain that success was due chiefly to the one personality, the one idea, the one artistic interpretation, the one guiding hand behind it all. So intimately has Mr. Merle been connected with dra- matics at Santa Clara, that we might well say our dramatics have become personified in him. Will Santa Clara in the future live up to the reputation of the past and the present in histrionics? We hope so. And when we ask who will keep up the high standard established, the answer comes back with re- curring force, Martin Merle. He who before our eyes trained Arthur Saxe, Henry Martin, Charles Boden, Vincent O ' Donnell, Henry Robidoux, Ed Murphy and others will repeat in others what he has achieved in them. Dramatics in Santa Clara will never retrograde with Martin Merle behind them. 73 EDWARD P. MURPHY, ' 26 THOMAS P. WOODLEY The third annual Dramatic Art Contest was held in the University Audi- torium on the evening of November 21, 1924, and has been highly praised. The program was arranged as a Vaudeville performance with this excep- tion that the acts were all playlets and most of them were of a serious na- ture. Altogether ten were presented and among them were selctions or adaptations from the works of Shakespeare, Dickens, Poe and other famous authors. After the usual opening by the orchestra, Thomas Woodley as- sisted by Francis J. Cox presented in a pleasing manner " The Son of Na- poleon. " This was followed by " Fleurette " in which the scene was a battle field of the great world war and had for its hero a wounded Canadian sol- dier. The principal part was taken by Samuel T. Mathews. The supporting characters, a visitor to the scene of battle and a soldier of the French army, were played by James B. Sheehan and Albert W. Schimberg. From the field of battle the audience was next transported to the halls of an ancient castle, and permitted to witness a clever portrayal of that old favorite, " The Baron ' s Last Banquet " . Edward Stretch sustained the char- acter of Baron Rudiger. As it seems to be every actor ' s highest aim to play Hamlet at some time or other in his career, John P. McEnery thought that for him no time would be more suitable than the present. Selecting, therefore, for himself the role of Ghost, he assigned the part of Hamlet to Remo N. Cipolla, and that of Horatio to Gerald Prindiville. Considering the difficulty of the piece and the fact that most of the people had seen it presented by professionals, it is highly creditable to Mr. McEnery and his assistants that they received such generous applause. 74 Hamlet was followed by an intermission during which the Orchestra rendered some tuneful selections. The intermission over, the curtain rose upon William Fallon assisted by John Steiss in the " Maniac " . The play though somewhat gruesome affords a good opportunity for the display of dramatic talent. The presentation by Mr. Fallon was well received. To restore the audience to more joyful sentiments, The Launcelot Gobbo scene from the Merchant of Venice was presented as a change. Crowcler ' s rendering of the humorous piece was cleverly expressed and received with due appreciation. The playlet following took the first prize. It was the scene from Riche- lieu in which the Cardinal extends his protecting arm over young Prince Delloraine, shielding him from the guard of the King of France. Edward Murphy was Cardinal de Richelieu, and it will be long before the audience will forget the majesty of the scene. France was once more the scene of action, but this time the stage was set in the time of the French revolution. The death scene of Sidney Carton was presented. It was taken from " The Tale of Two Cities, " which has been zonsidered as one of the finest of Dickens ' works. The fact that Henry Mar- tin, an accomplished and experienced actor, well known to all frequenters of the University dramatic productions, played the leading role, gave assurance of its success. Vincent O ' Donnell followed with a scholarly version of that very beautiful, vague and difficult piece, Poe ' s " Raven. " The last playlet carried us once more to France. The time was the reign of Louis XI, the subject, the King. The plot centers around a visit of his majesty incognito to a cafe of the poorer sort in Paris where he meets a lazy but good-natured loafer who gives him all manner of good advice and instructs him how to run the state. The part was sustained with much ease and grace by Joseph Sheehan. The first prize, as we have said, was won by Edward Murphy. Thomas Woodley of the High School Department received the second. Both, by the excellence of their work, merited their reward. 75 CARL YOUNG -THE END MEN- G. D. ABRAHAMSEN The Spring Revue From serious drama to music and light comedy, combined with breezy jokes and quips, might appear to many a quite lengthy jump, but, if they reflect for a moment, they will realize that tragedy and comedy trot along, side by side, in our daily life. So from the scenes of tears, of blood and death, presented in the Dramatic Art contest, let us take the leap to the scene staged by black-faced comedians, singers of popular airs and tellers of droll tales, that was given to the public over the week-end preceding Washington ' s birthday. When the curtain rose the University Band under the direction of Father Villa, played that old, old favorite, " Away Down South in Dixie " . After the southern delegation had let forth the rebel yell in approval and appreciation of Dan Emmet ' s famous song, the boys in white trous- ers and red coats followed with popular tunes of a military nature. Thomas J. Higgins came next with some of the best 1925 gags of the world of the two-a-day. The entertainment then took on something of a more serious but no less pleasant nature, in the form of a musical act, with J. Francis Good playing the violin, and J. Howard Ziemann ac- companying him on the piano. Good had quite a hard task before him, because most of the people present had listened to a Spaulding concert in San Jose only the night before; but the fact that he was given three en- cores after the conclusion of his regular programme, shows evidently that he had lost nothing by the comparison. 7G Ernest Bedolla and the irrepressible Tom Kenny next offered a few original songs, all of which " got over " very well, especially the one be- ginning, " He ' s a drug store cutie. " TnT, Tom and " Turk " , gave way to W. C. G. McDonnell who intro duced the minstrels proper. George Mallev, William Ronstadt, Bob Page Friermuth, Jack Spann, and Carlton Young took the principal parts, al though they were aided by a large and well trained chorus. " Bygones, ' " Tessie Stop Teasing Me, " " A June Night, " " All Alone, " Promise Me, ' Sally, " " I ' ve Got Those Rock-a-bye My Baby Blues, " " That ' s My Girl, ' " Hard-Hearted Hanna, " and " Charley, My Boy, " were the chief songs and then as a fitting climax, the new " Santa Clara Battle Hymn, " writ- ten by Father Coghlan and dedicated to the Varsity, was sung by all in common. With this stirring hymn the show concluded and the gen- eral public departed, fully satisfied that it had spent a very pleasant and amusing evening. The chorus was made up of the following students: Harold Bundy, John Burnett, Vincent O ' Donnell, Henry Robidoux, Saied Karam, William Fallon, Francis Smith, Gunlek Abrahamsen, Edward Murphy, Thomas Temple, Whitten Monteverde, Joseph Sheehan, Albert Campodonico, Edgar Schimberg, John Vasconcellos, P. H. McCarthy, Jo- seph Bonacina, Allen Early, Benedict Burkard, John Flynn, Lawrence Shultz, Emile Maloney, Albert Crowder, Leo Bihn, Fenton McKenna, Roderick Chisholm, Leonard Reeg, McCone Girard, Louis Burnett, Albert Zanetti, Remo Cipolla, Eugene Mallory, Hayden Vachon, Edward Stretch, Samuel Matthews, and Gerald Prindiville. 77 t% yfixgfy ' jBtmad The presentation of the Light Eternal constituted the dramatic cli- max of the year, excelling all other productions, both from the stand- point of elaborate attempt and from that of artistic merit. It was a credit to the University, to the scene painter, to the actors, to the di- rector, and to all who in any way participated in it. The story of the play deals with the persecution of the early Chris- tians in the reign of Diocletian, Emperor of Rome. The first act centers around Pancratius, a young Christian who has entered a contest for a prize offered to the one who would make the best speech on the question, " That a true Philosopher should ever be ready to die for the truth. " He won the prize, but accidentally the word " Christian " slipped from his tongue when he meant to say " Philosopher " . His enemy Corvinus alone notices the expression and su specting him of being a Chris- tian, comes with a warrant signed by the Prefect of Rome, for his arrest but only to find that Pancratius has been raised to a post of importance by the Emperor. The next act takes us to the villa of Prince Artemius in Campania, where Pancratius reveals some of the doctrines of Christianity to Artemius, but does not inform the Prince that he is a follower of the Nazarene. Cor- vinus arrives with his warrant and Artemius discovering that Pancratius is a Christian, orders him to be taken and confined in the Mamertine. Next the scene shifts to the court of Diocletian where Corvinus is press- ing his charge. Artemius, greatly moved, pleads with the Emperor for Pancratius ' life. The tyrant consents on condition that the young man deny his God. This Pancratius refuses, in spite of ridicule, flattery, threats, promises, and torture. Just as the Roman soldiers are striving to force him to bend before the altar of Jupiter a miracle takes place. An irresist- ible force destroys the altar and in its place a brilliant flaming cross, the symbol of the Light Eternal, appears. Pancratius kneels in adoration, while Diocletian and his court flee in terror. The last act brings before us the Colosseum, where the Emperor has ordered the Christian youth to be thrown to the lions. Here the boy meets the jeers of the mob with the kindliness of Christian charity and goes for- ward to his death firm in his conviction of the divinity of his faith. Of course it is impossible in the few lines allotted to this section, to give an adequate account of the play; but the reader can readily see that a drama woven around these facts by a person with the capabilities of Martin Merle cannot but be majestic in its nobility and sublime in its art. Com- bine with this artistic scenery and well trained actors who really live their parts, and it is easy to understand how one may utterly forget, for the space of two hours or so, the fact that he is spending a warm spring even- ing in a theatre in the Santa Clara valley in the days of automobiles and 78 79 80 81 airplanes. The leading role was entrusted to Arthur Saxe, who is well known as Don Luis of the Mission play, and St. Matthew of the Passion Play. As Pancratius he joined the agility and vibrant youth of Don Luis, to the dignity and nobility of Matthew, with what effect it is easy to im- agine. Henry Martin played the principal supporting part of Prince Artemius. To mention his name is enough, for everybody knows that if Henry Martin played a part it was well played. Edward Murphy was the treacherous Cor- vinus, Henry Robidoux as the pompous and arrogant Diocletian, Vincent O ' Donnell as Luciannus, and George Malley as Damius, all played their parts in excellent style. The other roles, too, were supported with great skill and merit, ample evidence of the high standard attained in Santa Clara dramatics. The Cast of Characters is as follows: Pancratius Arthur J. Saxe Prince Artemius .Henry B. Martin Corvinus Edward J. Murphy Sebastian Elisandro W. Palomares Emperor Diocletian W. Henry Robidoux Luciannus. Vincent H.

The past history of the great play: its initial staging at Santa Clara, and subsequent successes in San Francisco and the East, are too well known to need a detailed recital here. 82 @% JRoual JV emte of tl]t faints ; li 7 " 85 j ufcni (Drtjanbattons Foreword The transit and the scalpel, the test tube and Blackstone lie idle whil e shoulder-pads and head gears are donned; while plans for the " big bonfire " are painstakingly perfected; while bids, programs and decora- tions for the dance are arranged ; while rehearsals and yet more rehearsals are gone through for the winter revue or for the spring production; while matter for the public debates is secured and copy for the publica- tions is prepared. All for Alma Mater! Careers for the nonce are relegated to the background, and free time, always welcomed for a bit of luxurious leisure, is gladly sacrificed while work, born of affection, is done out of devotion to Alma Mater. The reward is yet more devotion because love is engendered by the unselfish toil. And how great a reward is this! The disappointments of thwarted efforts and the exhilaration of the success of labor expended for her, endears her to us all the more. Devotion is the fountainhead of the offerings, and the fountainhead is made to sparkle by the gratitude that is felt for what is received. As the student is cuirassed for the battle of life, so shall the battle fare. But careers need not be entered upon to know how well the cuirassing is done — a foretaste is allowed, and it is the foretaste that instills de- votion. Response to this foretaste is in truth part of the cuirassing. When such is received, gratitude irrepressibly responds, and the re- sponse is manifested by the offerings of the recipient. Some, indeed, merely receive without giving in return, but their gain is barren. Merely to learn the intricacies of a profession without laboring for Alma Mater results in entering upon the lists of the battle of life fully cuirassed as far as armaments go, but without an ideal for which to fight — without the favor of a beloved one in the stands who would watch and who would pray earnestly for success. And so it is. In giving to Alma Mater, much in turn is received. Just how much is given, and just how much is received, is reflected by the devotion which is engendered and which engenders. Student activi- ties reflect the perfection of the preparedness for entrance into a world of turmoil, and so it might well be said that the success of the year ' s activities of the Student Body of the University of Santa Clara was preordained, since the cuirassing of the students is of the quality that it is. 87 . : I i i ? - » _ PIERR, BEDOLLA, LEONARD, KARAM STUDENT BODY ACTIVITIES The election of Ernest D. Bedolla to the presidency of the Associated Student Body, assured from the start success to whatever it might under- take. Through his untiring efforts, and with the aid of his fellow officers, the students were enabled to give two dances, to hold a successful card party, and to produce a monster Vaudeville Revue. The dances were held during the first semester. Their purpose was to raise funds for the purchase of band uniforms. They were excellently managed and the splendid cooperation of the students was rewarded by a gratifying response from the friends of the University. Seifert Gym- nasium was the dance hall. It was beautifully decorated for the two occasions, and the gay crowds dancing to the music of the " Santa Clarans " , afforded a pleasing spectacle. Something novel at Santa Clara in the way of entertainment was offered when the Whist Party was held. It was quite an elaborate affair and called for much sacrifice which was cheerfully made. Tables were arranged in Seifert Gymnasium and in the Students ' dining room. To add zest to the play valuable favors were awarded the holders of the highest scores at the conclusion of the evening ' s entertainment. The Vaudeville Revue of 1925 was a merited success, both from an artistic and a financial standpoint. It was the second annual event of its kind. The Engineering Society had charge of the business end, and was in marked measure responsible for the splendid patronage that the Revue received. The officers of the Associated Student Body for the year 1924-1925 were: Ernest Bedolla, president; Saied Karam, secretary; Donald Pi err, treasurer, and Joseph Leonard, sergeant-at-arms. g8 LANGE, FERRARIO, FOSDYKE, FLANAGAN COMMITTEE ACTIVITIES At the beginning of the school year, President Ernest D. Bedolla of the Associated Student Body appointed a number of committees to take charge of various activities. The Rally Committee, made up of William Lange, Frank King, J. Howard Ziemann, Patrick McHugh, and McCone Girard, was to stage the Varsity rallies before each important football game. That held be- fore the St. Mary ' s game was especially notable and surpassed any pre- vious effort. These men also arranged the various details before each game, and had charge of the two Student Body dances. Successful tournaments were held in tennis and handball. The Ten- nis Committee consisted of Raymond Ferrario, Donald Pierr, and Thom- as Temple; the Handball Committee, of George Fosdyke, James Sheehan, and Albert Miller. The Bonfire Committee superintended the building of the huge struc- ture which was given to the flames at the rally held before the St. Mary ' s game. James Flanagan was general chairman. He was ably assisted by James Harrison, Lawrence Hufeisen, Philip Bannan, William McDonnell, Earl Toomey, Patrick McCarthy, Gaspar Greco, William Costello, Henry Martin, and Saied Karam. The Student Board of Athletic Control consisted of Frank King, Con- rad Storm, and Ernest Bedolla. With them were associated three mem- bers of the University faculty and three members of the Alumni associ- ation to give broader scope and development to Varsity athletics. 80 2% Jforotstc liear The interest Santa Clara has always manifested in the noble art of debate was maintained and increased during the past year. If one word would suffice to describe the efforts of the three University debating organ- izations it would be " Activity " , for never in the history of the University has more been displayed. In the past comparatively few public contests have been held with debating organizations of other institutions. This year no less than seven were held. As members of the California Inter- society Debating League, the Senate and House staged three public de- bates with similar societies from other colleges and universities. The Stephen M. White Debating Society, also, an organization limited to the lower classes of the college department, joined in oral combat several times with prominent societies from various nearby schools. No clearer proof is required that inter-society debating has taken a firm stronghold among us. Although victory did not always crown our representatives the earn- est efforts which on all occasions they displayed made ample recompense for the reverses that were suffered. In spite of the numerous outside debates and the interest which they excited, the Ryland Debate, the annual contest between the two houses of the Literary Congress, remained the feature event of the forensic year. So keen is the rivalry between ths two organizations, and so close have been the contests in the past, that the Ryland Debate stands out among all others as one of the leading college events of the year, not only for members of the organizations that take part in it, but for the whole stu- dent body. Gtterarg Congress As members of the California Inter-society Debating League, an organization composed of nearly all the debating societies in the universities and colleges of northern California, the Literary Congress has participated in three public contests. Whether a declaration of war should first be referred to the people for their ratification before it has force, was the question debated in the first two contests. Two Senate teams, one composed of Senators Robidoux and Burnett, the other of Senators Fallon and Dempsey, represented the Literary Congress. The former team upheld the negative side of the question against the Pro- gressive Club of the San Jose State Teachers ' College ; the latter defended the affirmative against the Euphronia of Stanford. Victory in debating is a fickle goddess. In both contests she frowned upon us. Our teams, however, often much younger than their opponents, always made a cred- itable showing. The House was scheduled to have two inter-society debates under the auspices of the Debating League, but only one actually took place. This was the debate with Mills College of Oakland, on the question, Resolved, 90 that the President of the United States should be nominated by a direct vote of the people. The House lost the debate by a two to one decision. In this contest Representatives McDonnell and Ford upheld the honor of the House against their feminine opponents. Another House team com- posed of Representatives Palomares and Becchetti was to have debated a society from the College of the Pacific, but by mutual agreement the meeting was cancelled. tepljen ,M. pipte ■[Belratmg arietg The Stephen M. White Debating Society has been one of the most active organizations in the college department this year. The accomp- lishment of a definite aim in the line of debate and public speaking has ever been kept in view, but the absence of dull moments might also be attributed to the humorous qualities of some of its members. In the line of natural ability, Mr. Malley, like Sampson of old, brought down the house when he tore off a couple of columns of " Sally in Our Alley. " This was in the opening session. Many such recitations increased the general pleasantry of the meetings throughout the year. The ultimate end of these meetings was to prepare the members for participation in the intercollegiate debates. Upon the receipt of the ques- tion to be debated, the members who were to defend the negative and affirmative sides were selected by the Moderator, Father Coghlan. But this was not done arbitrarily. Those chosen to represent the Society were so honored only after due competition for places. The first intercollegiate contest of the year was held at Santa Rosa Junior College on December 5th and was won by Mr. Spann and Mr. Reeg, who upheld the negative side of the question, " Resolved : that in all crimi- nal cases in California, three-fourths of a jury shall be competent to ren- der a verdict " . Mr. Spann is the more to be complimented as loss of eye- sight due to a serious sickness is a natural handicap. Representatives from the College of the Pacific next came down from Stockton, and defeated Messrs. D ' Arcy and Diepenbrock. Mr. O ' Brien was then substituted for Mr. Diepenbrock and preparation made for the succeeding contest. Our members took the negative side on the question, " Resolved: that the Federal government should directly subsidize the aircraft industry " . They were defeated at San Mateo by a vote of 2 to 1. Mr. Reeg and Mr. Spann formed the team and fought valiantly though the decision went against them. That same afternoon, Feb. 6th, brought a second defeat in Fresno. Mr. D ' Arcy and Mr. O ' Brien, however, did so well that no one would have been surprised had they won. The question, " Resolved: that the present tariff laws are on the whole detrimental to the farmers of California " , was the subject of the third and last intercollegiate debate. Mr. Carroll and Mr. Spann in support of the affirmative convincingly showed the honorable judges, their worthy opponents of Santa Rosa, and some hundreds of their listeners, what was wrong with the tariff and why. The affirmative won. 91 | — , , _Jf L ' Sw. __». c » 4 v _ " " " " Hi I r ' fe . iA « il «J 92 peltate OFFICERS First Semester President Rev. Joseph Vaughan, S. J. Vice-President Paul D.

DUFF ENGINEERING SOCIETY Because of the efforts of the efficient program committee and the whole-hearted co-operation of the prominent engineers of the vicinity, the Society has been most fortunate in obtaining many speakers at the program meetings. These lectures by men prominent in their profession have given the members of the Society an intimate insight into the con- ditions of the subject to which they are devoting themselves, have kept them in constant contact with the engineering world at large, and have proved ample food for thought, the consequences of which will be far- reaching. It is indeed gratifying to those who are training to make a po- sition for themselves in the engineering world, to see such generous unselfishness in matter of time and information. Heading the list of distinguished speakers was our President, Rev. Z. J. Maher, S. J., who addressed the members of the Society on the afternoon of Sept. 24, 1924. In his address Father Maher outlined the type of men Santa Clara ought to send forth from her portals. He com- mended the Society on its past record, and expressed his wish that the members of the class of ' 24- ' 25 should add new lustre to the reputation of their predecessors. On the afternoon of Oct. 16, 1924, Mr. H. Bosch, chief draftsman of the P. G. E. Co. of San Francisco, visited the Society. Mr. Bosch in his very dynamic way gave a concise idea of what is demanded of a young engineer. All his material was drawn from his many years of experience. The clever and charming way in which Mr. Bosch handled his subject won him the plaudits of the Society. A month later, Nov. 5, another prominent P. G. E. man delivered a very instructive lecture. Capt. Baldwin, speaking on Hydro-Electric development and using for his material the work of the P.G. E. Co., 98 along that line, gave the members of the Society much extremely inter- esting information on that particular field of engineering work. The Captain ' s witty remarks and jovial personality put him in high favor with the Society. Water supply, its source and distribution, has always been and will ever be an important engineering problem. To instruct the students in the practical bearing of the subject, Mr. Rolf, superintendent of the San Jose Water Works, made an able address. He explained in detail the working of San Jose ' s water system and very generously offered to con- duct personally any members of the Society over the system itself, or to such points of it as they deemed desirable. On Jan. 24, 1925, Mr. Holstead of the Western Well Works delivered an interesting lecture, taking for his subject, well-boring. He explained the different methods of sinking wells, and clarified the ideas of the stu- dents in the intricacies of this part of the engineering profession. Mr. I. C. Steel, Division Engineer of the Civil Engineering Dept. of the P. G. E. Co., on Feb. 14, held the attention of the Society by a most interesting lecture on the Pit River Development. He illustrated his lecture with a number of slides showing the actual construction of the enterprise. The address was extremely entertaining and instructive and worthy of a man of Mr. Steel ' s ability. On Saturday morning, March 21, Mr. E. G. McCann, head of the per- sonal department of San Francisco, gave a very interesting talk on the many problems encountered in keeping a unified interest in the forces of a large concern. He laid stress on the necessity of a man ' s taking his task to heart, realizing that his job was part and parcel of his liveli- hood and that he should do all things possible to fill that job to the best of his ability. Tuesday evening, March 31, the Society was distinctly honored by hav- ing as a speaker Mr. John B. Leonard of San Francisco. Mr. Leonard, who is an honorary member of the Society, is a prominent engineer and con- tractor in and about the Bay cities. During his talk he outlined the prog- ress of Civil Engineering from its infancy down to the present day. He stated that for the young engineer who is willing to look ahead and work there is a world of opportunity, but for the one who is willing to lumber along in a rut there is no place in the profession. He encouraged the members to be active, keen to keep pace with the wheels of progress, and emphasized the fact that if they did this their success would be assured. During the year Mr. Boring of the General Electric Co., of Schenec- tady, New York, and Mr. Balzare of the Westinghouse Co., of Pittsburg, Pa., paid a visit to the Engineering School and held conference with the Senior members with regard to student courses at their respective plants. 99 4 M 100 101 Tnguttermg Jkritfriites Rarely has the E ngineering Society enjoyed a more eventful year than the one just closed. Activities of a varied and interesting char- acter crowded each other closely on the year ' s calendar. Dean Sullivan ' s House Party The members of the Engineering College were guests of Dean and Mrs. George L. Sullivan early in the Fall semester at a delightful house party given at their residence on Madison street. The host and hostess extended a most hearty welcome to the students on the brilliantly decor- ated lawn surrounding the residence and provided for the evening ' s enjoy- ment a varied program. Dean Sullivan formally presented the Society with a perpetual trophy to be contested for by the Freshman and Sopho- more classes in various games involving the ingenuity, sagacity and phys- ical powers of the contestants. Following the humorous display of the ardent participants — and here we are forced, by the whole-hearted efforts of the Freshmen, to chronicle for posterity ' s sake their triumph on this occasion — bridge and whist were indulged in for the rest of the evening. Refreshments were then served, after which the class representatives showed their appreciation by well- chosen words. The singing of the University anthem concluded the even- ing ' s program. Track Survey Plans and specifications now await the opportune moment for the get- ting into shape of a new cinder path for track enthusiasts on the athletic field. Early in January the Civil Engineering Department conducted a preliminary survey and with the Board of Control selected the best pos- sible course. To the survey were appended the calculations necessary to the leveling of the path and an estimate of the expense in its construc- tion. The path will be a standard half-mile oval including a two-hundred and twenty yard straightaway. It circles the football field and the base- ball diamond, coursing between the home plate and the stand and turning again approximately seventy-five feet behind first base. The other turn is located immediately behind the southern goal of the football field. Thus the entire length of the track is in full view of the three present grand stands. Vaudeville Management Following the announcement that the proceeds of the " Vaudeville Re- vue of 1925 " were to go to the Montgomery Laboratory Fund, the Society showed its appreciation by an earnest effort to insure the success of the undertaking. An offer to handle all the outside work connected with the show was immediately drafted with a tentative plan of operations, and submitted to Rev. Father President. The offer was accepted. Commit- ( Continued on Page 200) 102 Pmforsttg publications It is the function of college publications to record the intimate life of the campus for the benefit and pleasure of present students, the be- whiskered grad, of outside friends, and the general public. For this pur- pose we have at the University the Redwood Annual, the bi-weekly " Santa Clara " , and the newly established Press Club. THE REDWOOD This is the oldest of our present campus publications, established in 1903 as a monthly, many, many years after the decease of " The Owl " . In 1923 the Redwood became an annual. Were it possible to have a year book depicting the affairs of the first year of the College and could we com- pare it with the present issue, what a contrast! The former would doubtless be a modest little volume telling of the work in the few classes that made up the course in Santa Clara ' s opening year. The Redwood has kept pace with the growth of Santa Clara; as the University ex- panded it also has grown in size and dignity. The present staff, though proud of this year ' s achievement, are not so vain as to imagine that fu- ture years will not bring an improvement. Development is the law of life, each generation of students holding up a standard that may spur to emulation those that succeed it. SANTA CLARA Although much of the students ' time is taken up in the preparation of the Redwood, enough remains to permit them to publish a charming little paper. " The Santa Clara " has grown so rapidly and improved so steadily that, at the present time, the fourth year of its existence, it compares favorably with any similar college publication in the country. This year it is under the guidance of Donald Pierr, as editor. Its flour- ishing condition is largely due to his ability -, and his timely editorial com- ments bespeak the close observer. Pierr has been ably assisted by Saied Karam, managing editor, and Emile Maloney, news editor. An expert staff of reporters and feature-writers have contributed their share also. The publication is divided into departments. The section devoted to literature contains the more ambitious efforts of the students in the literary field. The athletic department keeps in touch with the games. The writers of this section are students who have had personal experience in the various branches of athletics, and who are therefore well-fitted to offer intelligent comment. The Alumni editor is cease- lessly tracking the old students, and writes interesting paragraphs on their present occupations and successes. The Preps have a special de- partment accorded to them so that everything of interest about Kenna Hall receives due mention. Bits of College Humor and quips add to its sprightliness. Our only regret is that we do not see it oftener. 103 1 T t tk ,i I • - 4i 4 % " " % a m K, t OBSERVATO BIG S.C. RMiyCZZZ FRIDAY NIGHT fP 104 jimtta (Klara EDITORIAL Editor ._ .. ...Donald J.

Competition is keen and it is a question of the survival of the fittest. The public is seldom seeking us. We must seek the public. Cincinnatus could abide at home and devote his time to his oxen and his field, and await the call to command the armies of his country, but this was be- cause previous victories had given him publicity, and clearly demon- strated his superiority over all competitors. Now publicity at present is under the dominion of the press. The man who is master of the printed word holds a tremendous power. It is he who more than any other can mould the hearts and shape the minds of millions. At Santa Clara there is a group of students who have undertaken the task of stimulating enthusiasm in the student body and of keeping the University before the Public. Their organization, the Press Club, was founded at the beginning of the last semester. During the football season it was not idle, and through the efforts of its membres, the games were well advertised. The football season passed, and basketball and baseball followed in rapid succsesion. Again the Press Club applied itself to its task. Nor were its efforts confined entirely to athletics. The various other activities of the University called on it for aid and received it abundantly. Its articles preceding the Vaudeville Revue of 1925 appeared almost daily, serving so to stimulate interest, that the show was a great popular success. The efforts of the Club culminated in its articles on the most pretentious affair of the year, " The Light Eternal. " The members of the Press Club are W. C. G. McDonnell, director; and his assistants, Patrick H. McCarthy, Jr., Archibald McDougall, Pierre Marcel Barceloux, Richard Mclnerny, Joseph Bonacina, and Wal- lace Downey. Rev. Father McCoy is moderator. 108 ST. JOHN BERCHMANS SANCTUARY SOCIETY OFFICERS First Semester Second Semester Mr. James Donahue, S. J. Moderator Mr. James Donahue, S. J. J. Howard Zieman , Prefect Joseph Yudnich Joseph Yudnich Secretary Lawrence Duff James Sheehan Treasurer James Sheehan Frank A. King Censor. Thomas Temple Hayden Vachon Sacristan Francis Ruettgers Francis Cox, Joseph Solomon Vestry Prefects Joseph Carew, Edward Stretch The tendency of our age is all towards material enjoyment, sensual pleasure and dissipation. Children are hardly out of the cradle before they catch the prevailing fever. Worldliness feeds its fires till they con- sume the divine virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity, leaving naught but the ashes, as it were, of the Temple of the Holy Ghost. Truly, then, do our youth need wisdom from on high to preserve them from the ruin of all that makes for true manhood in time and eternity. We know from the experience of centuries that there is no better means at their dis- posal than serving at the Altar of God. The young man who affiliates himself with a society devoted to this service immediately is elevated in the minds of his companions. He shines out above all the others. This has proved true at Santa Clara as well as elsewhere. The stu- dents who are members of the Sanctuary Society are especially revered for their religious zeal; and they have not failed to live up to th eir repu- tations. Representatives of this society assist at all the religious exer- cises held at the University. Certain members are appointed each week to perform this important work, and their faithfulness has been most commendable. 109 SCHERF CASEY WOODLEY THE HOLY NAME SOCIETY It is the earnest desire of leaders in the Church that every Catholic man become a member of the Holy Name Society. The day is not far distant when, we hope, this end will be realized. The response to this great movement has been extremely gratifying. From all over the country come reports of the daily increase in the Society ' s ranks. The huge demonstration held in San Fi-ancisco last fall, when nearly one hundred thousand men marched in open profession of their faith, was proof that the Pacific Coast has not failed to grasp the magnificent possibilities of the movement. Santa Clara is also permeated with the spirit. The University chap- ter of the organization has not been behind in its duty. Representatives were sent to take part in the parade in San Francisco, and meetings have been held to create a greater enthusiasm among members. There is not, and never has been, any society, religious or otherwise, that has had a greater claim on the attention of Catholic laymen. It would be difficult to estimate the blessings it brings to its members; the good it does for them individually and collectively, and through them to the community at large. Besides aiming at the suppression of the vice of profanity and the glorifying of the Sacred Name as its title implies, the society exerts its influence for good in many other ways, especially by emphasizing regu- larity in the reception of the sacraments. The University chapter is under the direction of Rev. Father Mootz, S. J. J. Howard Ziemann is its capable student president. 110 F. KING JAS. SHEEHAN HARRINGTON BANNON SENIOR B. V. M. SODALITY One of the greatest tasks confronting the Church and her represen- tatives to-day is the Christian education of her children. These are to be her supporters in the future, and education alone will fit them for their task. The work has been carried on mainly by religious orders, but the burden has been too great for them to bear alone, so a call has gone out for volunteers. In answer, various other organizations throughout the country have put their shoulders to the grand work of perpetuating the Faith. Not to be outdone, the members of the Senior Blessed Virgin So- ciety at Santa Clara, have again this year as last, volunteered their ser- vices in teaching catechism to the children of St. Clare ' s parish school. But over and above this, the members of the Sodality, by the splendid example that they have given to the students who are not of their body, have accomplished a world of good. But they have benefitted themselves also by enrolling themselves in an association in which they are safeguard- ing themselves from temptations, and assuring themselves of the power- ful protection, both temporal and spiritual, of the most devoted of Mothers. Ill THE ORCHESTRA How seldom does the average person after attending a play or other entertainment recall the selections which the orchestra has played ! In fact the time devoted to music is so often spent in chatting that some almost fail to notice that there is an orchestra! Can it be possible that we are losing interest in music? On the contrary, this art is daily gaining in popularity. What then is the reason for this neglect? Doubtless it is often thoughtlessness. More often, perhaps, this seeming indifference is due to the cleverness of the Orchestra ' s director. He realizes that his music must remain in the background; that his players must not draw the interest of the audience from the stage. Professor d ' Alessio, director of the University Orchestra, is a musi- cian who thoroughly understands the matter. And yet these players who give their time and talents that they may add to the enjoyment of the public deserve our heartfelt thanks. Their work in the past has been highly commendable. They played admirably at the Dramatic Art Contest, the Vaudeville Revue, and the Elocution Contest, besides assisting at a number of student functions. But their greatest triumph was achieved in the " Light Eternal, " the musical score of which was written by Professor d ' Alessio. The organization this year is larger than it has been for some time past, and the interest and co-operation of the members has been so en- couraging that greater things are planned for the coming year. It is rarely, as we have said, that an entire audience appreciates the all-impor- tant musical program, but the work of this year ' s orchestra has been so outstanding that it has won widespread commendation. 112 THE BAND Officers Moderator Rev. Father Villa, S. J. Drum Major Director... Prof. d ' Alessio Wallace Downey Once again Santa Clara has a band. Although the need of such an organization has been greatly felt since the times of the S. A. T. C, ef- forts on the part of those interested, failed of success. Students and friends of the University often expressed regret, but the band did not materialize. They recalled the many years when Santa Clara could boast of one of the best bands in the State. With the advent of Father Villa the problem has been solved. We have now a band that gives promise of great things. At the first great bleacher rally of the year on Mission Field, he intro- duced his band to the student body. Of course, at that early date and with so little practice, the musicians had not learned all the tricks of brass bands but their efforts gave promise of so much that they met enthusiastic approval. Spurred on by this warm reception the members were faithful at rehearsals, and at their next public exhibition convinced everyone that a real band had arrived. Since then, the organization has participated in numerous functions connected with the University. Its presence at the St. Mary ' s- Santa Clara football game was one of the features of that memorable event ; and no loyal Santa Claran failed to experience a thrill when he beheld the bandmen neatly attired in their uniforms of red and white, parading the field. In the Vaudeville Revue they took a prominent part, adding much to its success. Let us hope that reborn to Santa Clara and instinct with new life it may grow and flourish in the coming years. 113 % L l xtaxb Memorial Jerome Sixtus Ricard of the Society of Jesus, a modest priest who studied the sun and thought there might be a connection between its spots and the weather: then a decade of years spent in observation and at last the discovery of a law the announcement of which caused the wise to smile and the ultra wise to sneer; but in spite of this, belief in his theory and forecast of a week: agreement between the forecast and the weather; then a longer forecast and greater agreement so that now for a decade he has been fore- telling the weather a month in advance ! Yet no word of approval, none of encouragement from the leaders of astronomy; but the vox populi which is the vox Dei proclaimed him " Padre of the Rains " . He made mistakes, yes, but more frequently he was right. And he was so gracious about it all, forecasting for every one and gratis. His equipment crude, his facilities inadequate, he nevertheless kept on though the even- ing of life was closing in on him ; then at the long last, a golden glow: the Smithsonian announces a similar research and the Meteorological Society sets itself to study the same problem: and the Knights of Colum- bus, that this humble scholar might complete his work and that those who are to follow him might carry it on in a way that is worthy both of the Knights and of the Padre, build the Knights of Columbus Ricard Memorial Observatory. 114 JMtmmt J cttfrtttes Under the capable presi- dency of Dr. Joseph R. Brown there have been a number of alumni activi- ties during the past year, in- eluding the whist party in the city to es- t a b 1 i s h an alumni schol- arship and the beautiful affair in honor of Clay M. Greene ' s seventy-fifth birthday. But the most far reaching has been the establishment of the Insurance Endowment Fund. The committee in charge of this movement is com- posed of Messrs. James A. Bacigalupi, ' 03, William Kieferdorf, ' 00, Roy Bronson, ' 12, Frank Heffernan, ' 08, Dr. Joseph R. Brown and Dr. Alex- ander S. Keenan. As we go to press the following alumni have in the ag- gregate taken out $40,000 insurance, with every prospect that in the near future others will also take out policies and thus lay the foundation of a fund that shall in time grow to worthwhile proportions and place the Uni- versity on a sound financial working basis on a par with other educational institutions of the Pacific Coast.

We started out with a rush that surprised our supporters, and ended up rather tamely with a beating from St. Mary ' s. There was plenty of prep- aration be fore the opening games, and it was then that the varsity dis- played its greatest strength. As the season advanced it gradually weak- ened. After engaging the Agnetian Club composed of former members of Cal ' s " Wonder Team " , Keinholz took the Broncos to Berkeley on Septem- ber 25 and gave the Bear a very creditable tussle. The prospects looked very promising. The game with the sailors two weeks later was won easily, and gave the coach ample opportunity to try out some of his new men. There were many aspirants for every position, and the campus prophets predicted the best eleven in years. The Cal. Aggies in a practice game proved a hard nut to crack and we found out that at the last whistle, we led by a scant touchdown. The game at Los Angeles a week later, on Oct. 18, stirred a new spirit in our hearts for we came through in the last half, and defeated the crack team from Occidental. Los Angeles gave our boys a very kindly reception. This game gave us a lot of confidence, for Stanford had previously been given a good fight by the southern eleven. On November 1, we tackled Stanford at Palo Alto and did indeed show some real football in the first quarter, with Chisholm doing most of the hard work. Unfortunately he was injured on a play, some twenty yards from the Stanford goal line, and with him out of the game, the team made a poor showing. As a result it came home with the short end of a 20-0 score. It seemed to lack the punch, the driving power, the impetus, at the crucial moment. A week later came the Nevada game, played in San Francisco, in a field of mud. For two years in succession, we had tied the Sagehens, and on this day, gloomy and d ismal, we again emerged from the game with the score 6-6. The following Saturday witnessed the Olympic Club game on the same field. Kienholz started out with his second string players, and they did fairly well under the repeated assaults of the veteran Club team. They could not, however, prevent a touchdown by the latter. The Broncos first eleven then took the field. A Coach cannot please everybody, and though many disapproved his action, we think that he did well in giving his sec- onds a chance to display their ability. There were few real spurts of speed and good playing, and the game ended in a victory for the Club men. Then came the gruelling and steady preparation for the St. Mary ' s game. We entered the lists the under dog, and we remained so through- out the struggle. It was a fine game, however, though St. Mary ' s proved itself a better aggregation. It was bitterly fought from start to finish, and throughout it was clean and sportsmanlike. We expect to improve the result in the coming year. 121 122 Coach Eddie Kienholz In regard to the Coach who guided the destinies of varsity athletics for two years, until his resignation after the con- clusion of the basketball season, we can do nothing better than quote from an official statement made by the Athletic Board of the University. " In justice to Mr. Kienholz the faculty members of the Athletic Board, leading members of the alumni and the officers of the Student Body at Santa Clara wish to state that their esteem for him as a competent and conscientious coach has not been diminished by the fact of his resignation. Kienholz has shown that he knows football and that he can impart his knowledge. As a man his in- fluence over the players and the whole student body has been admirable. He is every inch a gentleman. The unfortunate circumstances that made it seem advisable to Mr. Kienholz to proffer his resignation and to the Athletic Board to accept the same do not in any way detract from his recognized ability. " i « Assistant Coach Roy Baker Assistant Roy " Snowie " Baker has won his way into the hearts of all Santa Clara football men by his evident knowledge of the game and his quiet, modest manner of imparting it to others. As a halfback " Snowie " had few equals on the Pacific Coast, and the title, " Bullet " , which he bore, was not given without reason. He spent one year coach- ing the University of Southern California Frosh be- fore coming to Santa Clara last fall to take up the reins as assistant to Eddie Kienholz, his former high school coach. " Snowie " began practice with a good- ly number of varsity men early in January, though it was unofficial until the arrival of Coach Adam Walsh at Easter. Walsh and Baker were former high school chums, and this augurs well for har- mony in their relations as guides of the destinies of next year ' s football team. 123 Captain " Moose " Fawke . This blonde-haired giant came to Santa Clara four years ago from Polytechnic High of San Francisco with a reputation for line smashing power, and he has since developed into the greatest defensive fullback on the coast. When our athletic hopes were at their lowest he was the leading spirit behind the teams urg- ing them on to renewed efforts. Much praise has ever i» been heaped upon him but he has always borne it with lanly modesty; a brave and worthy leader, magnifi- | 1 cently unselfish and ever ready to give his all for Santa t clara - | His was a great spirit on the gridiron, not only in the force behind the attack, but in the thought that W inspired it. As Coach Kienholz so fittingly said on the evening of the Stanford rally, " Moose " Fawke is the greatest captain I have ever coached. " " Moose " was a steady ground gainer for the varsity but he shone above all as a mighty bulwark of de- fense. He gradually worked himself into the full confidence of those who cheered him on. It is to be regretted that his final game was not crowned with victory. He gave his all on last Thanksgiving afternoon and only regretted that he had not more to give. Captain-Elect Storm This sophomore from Salinas has been chosen to guide the destinies of the ' 25 varsity football team and promises to keep up the fine work of his predecessor. He was the fleet right end who snatched up the stray ball in the St. Mary ' s game two years ago and gave us victory. Again at the beginning of this year he was the ready one that scooped up Dixon ' s fumble in the California game and gave to Santa Clara the first touchdown in the New Memorial Stadium. Because of a broken ankle, unfortunately received in a practice game at Santa Clara, Storm was out of active play for the rest of the season, yet he was always to be seen on the side lines, stirring his comrades to battle and instilling courage into their offense. " Connie " is a serious minded fellow, yet at all times he displays a rare bit of humor. He is very popular on the campus and we believe holds much promise for his Alma Mater. He has our confidence in his ability to guide our football team to victory in ' 25 and we are certain that he will give of his best to back that con- fidence. 124 WmBBBm Santa Clara 7, California 13 The 1924 collegiate football season was ushered in when the Broncos went to Berkeley on Sept. 27, and twisted the tail of the much-touted Golden Bear. There was a sporting crowd present, all anxious to see California put to the test, and they certainly were not disappointed, for Santa Clara played its best game of the season that day, and came within an ace of breaking the charm by defeating California. An early fumble by Dixon — Storm stooping to pick up the ball on the run — a sprint of fifty yards to the goal line that had not as yet been crossed in the new Memorial Stadium — this was the thrill of the day. The Bears did not know what to make of it, and California rooters were dazed. Santa Clara spurred on by the cheering of many supporters held the Bear at bay. Terrific line plunges by Chisholm, the new full-back, made huge gaps in the Bear defense. A poor pass from our center finally resulted in a touchdown for the Bears, who were eager to make the best of every opportunity. Still at the end of the half the score stood 7-6 in Santa Clara ' s favor. It was a wonderful sensation for local supporters to see the Bears leave the field with heads hanging. As later events were to prove, that mo- ment was the climax of our season. Andy Smith said something between halves, and the Bears came back for the next touchdown in the third quarter. Successive attempts to rally by the Broncos failed to materialize into another score and gradually we became satisfied to keep the Bears from coming deep into our territory. The game ended with the crowds satisfied that they had seen a thrilling contest, and predicting a bright season for the Broncos. 125 Santa Clara 12, Occidental The invasion of the south came on October 18, when Kienholz stormed the citadels of Los Angeles and surprised the populace by his victory over the powerful Occidental Tigers. The first, second and third periods were scoreless, and it seemed as if the game was destined to end in a 0-0 tie. Then Bundy in the final quarter started the parade; and with a choice variety of bewildering triple passes out-foxed the southerners and scored the first down. Shortly afterwards Babcock got away for a fifty yard run that brought the second score. It was a thrilling last minute rally, with the Broncos never quitting till the bacon rested securely in their hands. And so they brought home the trophy, and with it the re- spect of the southern city. It had required real strategy to beat Occidental. The first quarter was all theirs, for twice in that period they carried the ball to the Bronco twenty yard line where they were held, and where twice they failed on attempted field goals. The next two quarters were more even, but always the Tiger was weakening, while Santa Clara was getting stronger and stronger. When the Oxy team had worn itself down making futile ef- forts to score, the Broncos made their mighty drive to victory. Casa- nova ' s educated left toe, which for the first time began to play a really prominent part in Santa Clara effectiveness, did much to hold the Tigers at bay, while " Moose " Fawke, who in every contest " plays the best game of his career " , really did it without any exaggeration this time. The Santa Clara student body gave the victorious team a great welcome at the depot on their return, and once again a spirit of confidence ruled on the campus. 126 Santa Clara 6, California Aggies The California Aggies game fought out on the local campus on Oct. 25, resulted in another victory for the Varsity. It was a slow affair marred by frequent fumbles, which were especially costly for the Broncos, who otherwise far outclassed the Aggies in every department. Leo Nock won the game for us in the third quarter when he recovered a fumble and travelled fifty yards to the one and only touchdown of the day. A speedy Aggie player crossed our line after a seventy yard run on a recovered fum- ble, but the score was disallowed as the runner went out of bounds. The Santa Clara line held the Aggies at will. Casanova did most of the ground gaining for the locals. His kicking was true, and he got off some long ones. It was in this game that he first demonstrated to the home fans that he was gradually developing into the greatest punter on the Pacific Coast. The affair, however, as a whole, was far from satisfying from a Santa Clara viewpoint. The Varsity although showing flashes of the splendid form they had displayed against the Golden Bear at the opening of the season, seemed to lack the punch that had been expected of them. They gained almost six times as much yardage as their opponents, and the backs tore through at will until the ball advanced to the twenty yard line, when an unfortunate fumble would spoil an ap- parently certain score. One of these fumbles in the first quarter was re- covered by an Aggie man for a forty yard run. Besides two of Casanova ' s kicks were blocked, revealing a glaring weakness in the system of defend- ing the kicker. Second only to Cas. in ground gaining ability was Ray Hulsman, husky backfield man who hit the line hard every time he got the ball. 127 Santa Clara 0, Stanford 20 We had expected to surprise Stanford, and do much the same to the Cardinals as we had done to the Golden Bear. But on arrival at Palo Alto we found the Cardinals thoroughly prepared ; they respected us altogether too much to be caught off their guard. We were the victims, Big " Red " Chisholm was injured during the first quarter and that served to shatter our hopes, for he had been tearing the Stanford line to shreds, as he had previously torn Califronia ' s. Our forwards did fine work, but " Pop " Warner ' s backfield stars, Hey, Bogue and Cleveland, were too much for them. Captain " Moose " Fawke as usual was a mountain on defense, straining every muscle to push the Cardinal back, but to little avail. Jack Nolan also did some spectacular tackling. The sole satisfaction in this game from a Santa Clara standpoint was that our score was a remarkable improvement over last year ' s, when we lost 54-6. To this day it is a matter of conjecture as to just what would have happened had Chisholm not been injured. We shall not soon forget how that powerful Stanford line bent and cracked as the red head dove into it six successive times, with or without interference. Whether he could have maintained the same terrific pace throughout four quarters, or whether his inspiring example would have encouraged his teammates to follow his lead, is problematical. But it is certain that while Chisholm was in the game, Santa Clara looked like world- beaters; the moment he was taken out they wilted. From 54-6 down to 20-0 ! That is certainly a big improvement in a year. Next season we hope to do even better. 128 Santa Clara 6, Nevada 6 On a field of mud the Broncos and the Wolves battled for a long gloomy afternoon, only to emerge with the proverbial tie score. Three successive seasons now have seen each team score one lone touchdown. Twice the game was 7-7 ; this year it was 6-6, as the ball was so muddy that it could not be booted between the bars for an extra point. This year ' s game was characterized by much kicking and waiting for breaks on each side. Both teams played warily at all times and there was the usual fight to the finish, each trying in vain to break the charm and win. Captain Harrison of Nevada had the advantage on Bundy in kicking during the first half, but Santa Clara equal- ized matters by a powerful offensive. Nevada ' s break came in the second quarter, when after blocking a punt she recovered on Santa Clara ' s eight yard line. The Broncos took the ball away on downs but on the very first play a bad pass to Bundy standing on his own goal line, was recovered by Nevada for a touchdown. The Broncos came back in the third quarter with the best brand of football they had shown during the season. Casanova ' s beautiful kicking gradually drove the Wolves back to their own goal. He himself returned one of Harrison ' s punts 25 yards through a broken field, and from this position the Broncos proceeded to plough through for a touch- down, Ray Hulsman finally diving over the line. Both teams then resumed their waiting tactics, but though time and again a score seemed imminent for one or the other, it never came. The fans who had braved the stormy weather considered themselves well repaid for the inconvenience. 129 CLUB GAMES Agnetians 6, Santa Clara The season opened auspiciously when the Broncos lined up on Admis- sion day, September 9, at Ewing Field, against the Agnetian Club, a team composed mainly of former members of California ' s " Wonder Team " . " Stew " Beam, " Dummy " Wells, " Fat " Clark, Newmeyer, Barnes, repre- sented the Golden Bear, and met unexpected opposition from the young Santa Clara huskies. Wright, formerly of Nevada, three minutes after the play started, got away on a wide end run for the sole touchdown of the day. After that the clubmen settled down and struggled desperately to stave off the persistent attacks launched during the remainder of the game by the Kienholz array. A brilliant last minute passing attack by the Broncos filled the air with footballs, and time and time again brought the Red and White within the shadow of the Agnetian goal posts, but the club men fought doggedly and were able to hang on to their six point lead to the end. The great work of Fawke, on defense, and of " Red " Chisholm, Stockton and Hassler on the offense, were the outstanding features of the game. Santa Clara 20, Sailors U. S. S. California The Broncos took a languid game from the sailor boys on the local grounds Sept. 20, scoring twenty points to the navy ' s nothing. In the opening quarter Babcock got away for forty yards to a touchdown. The try for point did not succeed. Hassler carried the ball over again in the second quarter after a series of line bucks had brought the Broncos within striking distance of the goal. Then shortly before the game was over, big " Red " Chisholm, after engaging in a passing duet with " Moose " Fawke, carried the oval across for the final touchdown. " Bud McKee was re- sponsible for two conversions. The navy boys were outclassed in every department of the game, and the score could as easily have been double what it was. 130 ffilgmptc Club 13, arita (Clara The Broncos made a bad impression on the City fans Nov. 16 when they were downed by the Olympic Club 13-0 at Ewing Field. As this was the last game before the St. Mary ' s struggle, Coach Kienholz did not want to risk injuring any of his dependables uselessly. Hence he started his second string at the beginning of both the first and third quarters. A fumble by an Olympian on the opening kick-off barely escaped being picked up by a Santa Clara end, but he too fumbled, and the golden opportunity was gone. Another S. C. fumble a short time later resulted in the first Olympic score, the half ending 7-0. Though the first string players were sent in in a body in each half, they were unable to put over a score, despite the fact that they showed great power in midfield. The Clubmen made their second touchdown against Santa Clara ' s best. The game was again a disappointment to local supporters; the one bright feature was Casanova ' s nice kicking. FRESHMEN GAMES Though freshmen were eligible for varsity football at Santa Clara, nevertheless a first year team was formed, and during mid-season was able to get in a couple of games, winning one and losing one. Frosh 20, Bakersfield Coach " Snowy " Baker invaded Kern County with his well-trained eleven on Oct. 18. He not only came and saw, but did not fail to conquer, the score reading twenty to nothing. Since 1920 the Oil-drillers had not tasted defeat, but the Bronco colts certainly administered a large dose. Hassler, McCormick and Cummings did the scoring, and the line was impenetrable. The boys brought back the bacon indeed, and this to- gether with the news of the Varsity victory on that day over Occidental was sweet to hear. S. C. Frosh 3, Stanford Frosh 27 At Palo Alto a week later the Colts met with a superior Freshman team, yet played it off its feet in the first periods of the game. A drop- kick by Connolly placed us out in front, but only for awhile, for the Stanford Babes soon started march after march across our line. Terriffic penalties in quick succession took the heart out of our players in the first quarter, and they never did quite recover. As this was the first sea- son that has seen a Freshman football team at Santa Clara it was not a disappointment. 131 SANTA CLARA 7, ST. MARY ' S 28 The eve of the annual contest between the two rival colleges found St. Mary ' s by comparative scores 21 points better than Santa Clara; the game on the following day bore out the forecasts. Thangsgiving afternoon saw the largest crowd that ever packed Ewing Field restlessly awaiting the starter ' s whistle. After the first few plays it was evident that " Slip " Madigan ' s men had mastered the Notre Dame shift and that we were unprepared to meet it. On account of the efficient work of Captain " Red " Strader, who alone bucked the line for 211 yards from scrimmage, and the worthy support of his team- mates, Santa Clara was put to rout and never actually recovered until the last quarter. For three whole periods the Saints had things pretty much their own way and in these periods they scored three touchdowns. Their first came as the result of a brilliantly executed pass to O ' Rourke, who scored without a Santa Clara man anywhere near him. Two other passes later carried them across our goal line again. Once we held like adamant for three downs on the one yard line, though the mighty Strader and Rooney pounded their best. But on the fourth, a sweeping end run was called, and the ball carried over. In the third quarter a brilliant passing game was resorted to by Santa Clara, and twelve out of twenty-five throws were successfully made. Casting discretion to the winds and regardless of their position on the field, the Broncos staged an aerial offensive so bewildering that St. Mary ' s in turn seemed powerless to break it up. The net result was one touchdown, though a second came perilously close to being realized. Bundy started the fireworks, 132 from his own twenty yard lino, hurling one for thrity yards to Mcln- erney; then another to MeKee for fifteen more. The next pass was in- tercepted by the Saints, who tried an aerial comeback, but Bundy inter- cepted on the first attempt. Hal kept up the overhead game, passing first to Hassler for twenty-five yards, then to the same fleet-footed youngster for thirty more. Then followed a third toss of some thirty yards over the St. Mary ' s line, where Toso received it amid the wild cheers of the Santa Clara supporters who had waited all the afternoon for a score. It was an attack that will long live in the memory of those who had seen Santa Clara, almost wiped off the football map, coming back via the air, strong, resolute and sure. Fawke converted for the additional point. Then the passing method was resumed, and it looked as if the score would be 21-14, for Dick Mclnerney was waiting with open arms across the St. Mary ' s goal line for a throw; but a Red and Blue player inter- fered with his reception of it and the ball went out to the twenty yard line. That ended the Bronco threat. St. Mary ' s secured her fourth and last score after the final gun had been fired. A Red and Blue player carrying the ball was tackled as the gun went off. He was supposedly down and the game over, but he succeeded in struggling to his feet without opposition and crossed the goal line. The touchdown was allowed, and the Santa Clara team stood around while the last point was converted. The final score was 28-7 in favor of St. Mary ' s. Perhaps the greatest single feature of the game was the phenomenal kick of Casanova, Santa Clara ' s quarterback. Standing five yards behind his own goal line, he booted the ball far over the head 133 of the St. Mary ' s safety man. It rolled to within three yards of the oppo- site goal, and would have continued on its way had not George Malley downed it. From the time it left Cas ' toe until it finally grounded, the ball travelled 102 yards, though Cas is credited with only 97 from the line of scrimmage. This is certainly a new long distance record for Coast football, perhaps even for the whole country. The late lamented Walter Camp, dean of American football, was pres- ent at the game. It was in fact the last grid contest he witnessed before his untimely death. He expressed his admiration for the wonderful kick- ing of Casanova, the remarkable playing of Jack Nolan and that of the St. Mary ' s captain, " Red " Strader. Thus, somewhat to our chagrin, did the curtain ring down on the foot- ball season of 1924. The Line-up " St. Mary ' s Santa Clara O ' Rourke LER Toso Nelson LTR Gallagher Watson ...LGR.

It augurs well for the future of Santa Clara in football that on learning of the appointment, promi- nent sporting writers both in the East and West praised the new coach particularly for his admirable qualities as a leader of men. From what we have heard and read and seen of Adam Walsh we do not hesitate to put Santa Clara ' s football future in his hands and we confidently feel that he has the ability to shape well the material which will be his to mould. Our record in the past has not been glorious; great victories have been few. Yet our teams have fought hard and have fought cleanly. Just such a fighter was Adam Walsh and if Santa Clara men have been courageous in the past, surely this good quality will grow stronger in them as with memory ' s eye they vision a clay last year at the Polo Grounds when their new coach fought grimly and brilliantly despite a pair of broken hands and a weakness which necessitated his being lifted into position after many a play. Little wonder that with such a captain the Notre Dame Varsity, " the far-famed fighting Irish, " swept victoriously from East to West. But Adam Walsh had more than the fighting spirit — more than fearlessness. He had more than clear eyes and quick wits which so un- cannily sensed the offensive strategy of the enemy; he had more than trained muscles and that bodily vigor so necessary for a sport which asks so much of the physical m an. Adam Walsh had something above all this. He had and has character. He counted not at all the sacrifices of time and strength; heeded not the demands on patience, but ever with determination and persistence toiled hour upon hour to lift the banner of Notre Dame high above the colors of any University in the country. What he and his men accomplished marks an epoch in football history. This then is a rapid glance at a man who is to be the inspiration of our Varsity. May he as coach find in the sons of Santa Clara the same love of Alma Mater, the same spirit of courage and sacrifice, the same unity of effort and forgetfulness of purely personal glory, which as cap- tain he found in the sons of Notre Dame. 139 JSasketball Reason JRefrtefn When Coach Kienholz called the basketball candidates for practice in December, he was faced with the problem of building up a new team. Only two regulars remained from the previous year, Captain Johnny Vukota, and " Moose " Fawke. George Malley and " Bud " McKee were both on the injured list, and had to be content to coach the Prep team; while Harold Toso, who has been one of the mainstays of other days, had completed his four years of Varsity competition, and so was inelig- ible. With this handicap Kienholz went to wark and with Vukota and Fawke as a nucleus, built up a team with what Freshman material he had at hand. Several good men appeared for the first time in the Bronco uniform, among them Regan, Valine, McCormick, Keating, and Gottwals. All these did very creditably considering that it was their first year in Varsity competition, and they give excellent promise of good hoop teams for the coming years. Regan turned out to be an ideal center. His height, combined with his speed on the floor, helped the team greatly. Valine who alternated at center with Regan showed up well and was second only to Vukota in shooting baskets. McCormick and Clancy proved good guards, and each took turns with Fawke in defending the basket. Keating, Gottwals, and McAuliffe all took turns as running mates of Captain Vukota and looked good in the forward positions. Another year will see these men experi- enced and valuable assets to the team. In the preliminary games the team did very well considering that new combinations had to be brought into harmony and prospective players had to be tried out. We beat all the teams that could be signed up, and lost only two games, one to the Y. M. I. and the other to the Olympic Club. That there was nothing discreditable in these defeats is shown by the fact that both teams were later sent to play in the National A. A. U. Championships in Kansas City. The Collegiate season, however, presented stronger opposition, and the Broncos found it tougher going than in the first games of the season. Stanford led off by beating the varsity by two points. We then beat the College of the Pacific, and split two games with St. Ignatius. Then came the U. S. C. games in Los Angeles in which the team showed up well but was handicapped by the long trip and no rest. The loss of the St. Mary ' s series was a bitter disappointment because we appeared to be their su- periors in every department of the game before the series started. Prob- ably our lack of success in seme games, especially those that were close. was due to our five man defense which gave the opposing team a chance to hog the ball and thus keep the lead. Another reason may be found in the fact that the team was built around Vukota, and when he was closely guarded we were unable to score freely. 140 ™ ? ? pp jfl il 1 j j rSjI jy 1924-5 VARSITY 141 Captain Jofymtte Small in stature, yes, but oh how mighty with the ball! To Captain Johnnie " Silent " Vukota, star performer for the last four years and cap- tain of the varsity in ' 24 and ' 25, must be attributed mainly whatever suc- cess Santa Clara has gained on the basketball floor in recent years. " Si- lent " Johnnie has plenty to say around the campus. There the title is purely honorary.

' : -i-Wi W aml determination to " stick with it " no •:- £ot ?$ ' matter how badly things are breaking JM against him. Vukota was a polished player when he first came to Santa Clara in 1922, was able to step into the team as a regular, and compete with the best. Four years with the famous Livermore Cowboy quintet had made him an experienced cage artist and gained him the reputation of being an " eagle eye " and the most consistent shooter in his part of the country. He is considered as in a class by himself at the forward position. His style is different from that of the average player. He doesn ' t need to be " fed " , but can go out and get his own shots, and put them in from al- most any angle or any distance. He is brilliant from every standpoint and his dribbling, his speed and his center floor shooting, are immediately recognized by the spectators. It is not mere luck or an occasional burst of speed that makes him the terror of opponents, but his consisten cy. Vukota has been Santa Clara ' s main offense for the past four years, and this season was one of his very best. He has never been held score- less once during his career at the local college, and his smallest total of points in any game was seven. As a rule, he is good for between fif- teen and twenty points a game, and has made as many as thirty-six. Although the past season has been a failure from the standpoint of winning important games, the team as a whole has played good ball, and Captain Johnnie " Silent " Vukota has personally had the most brilliant season of his career. 142 i % i 143 (Eolk tate dames Stanford 15, Santa Clara 13 The collegiate season opened for the Varsity when they met the Cardi- nals at Palo Alto. Early season form was apparent on both sides. The Bronco team was slow in starting and trailed 6 to 3 at the end of the first half, neither team showing ability to find the basket. Santa Clara gained the lead in the second half when Regan and Clancy rang three field goals. The Cards again forged ahead and held a two point lead till the end of the game. California 27, Santa Clara 13 Santa Clara next played the conference champions on their own court and made a creditable showing considering the record of their opponents. Gottwals put us in the lead at the outset with a field goal from the center of the court, but shortly thereafter the Bear forwards began shooting and kept their team well in the lead. The five man defense of the Bron- cos did not seem to be functioning properly since the California forwards pierced it often to shoot close under the basket. St. Ignatius 29, Santa Clara 20 The first game of the series with St. Ignatius was played on the lat- ter ' s court in San Francisco. The Ignatians had won three straight games before they played us and looked like a real team. They lived up to their reputation by getting away to a fast start in the first half, at the end of which they were on the long end, 13 to 7. The Broncos came back in the second half and fought on even terms but the Ignatians retained their lead to the finish. St. Ignatius 15, Santa Clara 20 The Bronc quintet tackled the Ignatians on our home court in the second game of the series and showed a marked improvement in their playing. The speed of our offense overcame the close guarding of the Ignatians owing to the fast team work of Valine and Vukota. University of Southern California 28, Santa Clara 27 This game was a hotly contested affair from start to finish. The lead see-sawed during the entire game and the Trojans were lucky in possess- ing the extra point when the whistle blew. Captain Vukota had the home guard baffled both with his long shots from the center of the court and with his fast dribbling through the Trojan defense. He scored 16 of the 27 Santa Clara points. University of Southern California 38, Santa Clara 18 The second game with the Trojans did not prove to be as close as the first. Johnnie Vukota, who threw a scare into the southerners the night previous by shooting 16 points was zealously guarded by a detail sent into the game for that purpose. The result was that Johnnie got only one field goal during the game. 144 St. Mary ' s 22, Santa Clara 20 The Broncos entered this game favorites since we had a better record for our preliminary season than had the Oaklanders. But as has been proved in previous years the outcome of the game with our rivals can never be forecast, since both teams play better and fight harder in these games than in any others. Going into the game with a decided edge, Santa Clara started out in fast style and shot thirteen points in the first half, allowing the Saints only seven, thanks to the close guarding of Fawke and McCormick. In the second half, however, St. Mary ' s made some alterations in its line- up, one of the substitutes being McShane. This boy started shooting from all angles of the court and his work not only tied the score, but gave St. Mary ' s the victory. Possibly our team was a little over-confident after out-classing the oppositi on in the first half, but this only shows the fool- ishness of over-confidence. St. Mary ' s 15, Santa Clara 17 With the defeat of the previous week rankling in their mind, the team went into this game and fought hard from the start. There was not much shooting in the first half as both sides guarded closely; the Saints, however, gathered eight points to our five. Shortly after the opening of the second half, Valine and Keating with Vukota ' s aid started working together in fine style and between them ran up eight or ten points in a short time. When they weren ' t close enough to shoot they monopolized the ball so that St. Mary ' s didn ' t get many chances to score. At this juncture McShane, who did so much damage in the preceding game, was put in by Madigan, but failed to re- peat his former success. In fact he was so closely guarded that he got very few shots at the basket. Lawless towards the end made four more points for the Saints, but in the meantime Valine had added the same number to the score for the Broncos and cinched the game for Santa Clara. St. Mary ' s 31, Santa Clara 15 The third game of the series was played in the St. Elizabeth gym- nasium court in Fruitvale and promised to be the best game of the series since each team had won a victory by two points. As it turned out how- ever the game was one-sided in favor of St. Mary ' s. The Oaklanders started off with a fast passing game and hung up 18 markers in the first half while the Santa Clarans were able to get only 9. Lawless and Freitas of the Saints were working perfectly together and could not be stopped. 145 Santa Clara made a few flashy plays when Valine and Vukota succeeded in breaking up the Saints defense, but they failed to do so often enough to bring us to the front. The second half was a walk-over for St. Mary ' s. Their fast forwards piled up 18 points while we were groping for 6. Credit nevertheless must be given our team for their fighting spirit. They struggled on to the end, in spite of the fact that such decided odds were against them. 8L M f , K •»• H J.i ■IB t ■ -Mm • 1 " ' - 1 1 $3 f ' ! ' ET- ■ii fY ' rBP • wm i m ' me FRESHMAN QUINTET 146 Baseball i m%an Refrtefa Coach Sam Agnew and Captain Charlie Scherf called the first workout of the season on January 15. About thirty-five or forty aspirants for the nine turned out and the prospects for a winning season seemed indeed rosy. The idea of having a former big leaguer as coach, had roused the en- thusiasm of the local baseball followers and Ag- new ' s arrival was the signal for the outbreak of this enthusiasm in the largest turnout of athletes M ft ' in the recenl history of the national pastime a1 HMj 1 Mjg Santa Clara. The team developed steadily under his capable U M guidance, and seemed to have rounded into ex- lf Hi cellent form by the time that the intercollegiate Jf games rolled around. We had won one and lost one to Stanford, and dropped a close one to California when Agnew ' s pro- fessional duties called him away, thus leaving the team without a coach. The duties of coach and manager besides other sundry jobs then fell upon the shoulders of " Chuck " Scherf. We all know that Charlie is a finished ball player, but the overwhelming responsibilities thrust upon him weighed too heavily on his willing shoulders with the consequence that something must give way under the strain. The young and promising team was left without a guiding hand just at the time that it needed guidance most. Moreover, injuries to " Pansy " Miller and Sam Dagley put them out of the lineup for the season and crippled the team considerably. Thus doubly handicapped, coupled with the fact that it was made up in great part of Freshmen, ' there should be no surprise that in later competitions with the veterans of intercollegiate teams, ours did not have all the success that we wished. Of catchers we had three. Jesse Marques, the veteran of the trio, is a heady receiver and has a real punch in his bat. His arm, however, at times, bothered him considerably. Bill Williams, playing his second year, had the happy faculty of delivering in the pinches. Bill was full of fight and fire every minute he was in the game, and his trusty willow crashed out many a basehit when basehits were most needed. Jack Mussell, a Freshman, registered from Idaho, was the third. He was always danger- ous at the bat, had a strong arm, and handled his pitchers well. The hurlers, who have received much criticism in the daily papers, are on the contrary deserving of great credit. Practically all of them were Freshmen. They were forced to do battle without proper coaching when coaching was all that they needed ; and were it not for the splendid spirit that they showed in the face of so many discouragements, what the out- come would have been is hard to conceive. 147 148 ■■:. ., Pitchers: Brown, Gottwals, Campisi, Storm, Wright, Brandt " Tony " Campisi had worlds of stuff on the old apple, and besides his varied assortment of hooks possessed a wily brain that had his opponents at sea most of the time. " Connie " Storm delivered in a most satisfactory fashion. He bore the brunt of many a gruelling contest and usually had the situation well in hand. His ability as displayed this season ranks him with the best. He was most frequently assigned the thankless job of relief pitcher and always did his part nobly. " Cliff " Gottwals, getting a late start, had some disheartening breaks, but showed that he has in him the making of a first class pitcher. In another year he should be a con- sistent winner. Henry Brown, Jerry Barceloux and Wally Brandt com- pleted the staff. By their untiring efforts and perseverance they were a great help to the team. Whenever they were called upon, they acquitted themselves in a creditable manner. The infield included Captain Charlie Scherf at first, Joe McNealy at sec- ond, Jack Miller and Dave Clancy at short, and Bob O ' Brien at third, with " Jock " Moroney in the utility role. Scherf played a steady game all the season and deserves a lot of praise for his efforts. He kept up the team ' s morale when nothing but his personality could have done it, and whatever bright spots the season has shown are mainly due to him. Joe McNealy, playing his first year of college ball, did very well. He covered his posi- tion nicely and held up his end of the stick work in commendable fashion. Jack Miller, last year ' s third baseman, was moved to short and was show- ing up finely at the beginning of the college season when he was unfor- tunately forced out of the game with a sprained ankle. Dave Clancy, another veteran, stepped into Jack ' s shoes. Dave fielded satisfactorily and looked especially good at the plate. " Bob " O ' Brien, a product of the Preps, was the find of the season. As a made-over first baseman he handled his position in brilliant fashion and (Continued on page 198) 149 Catchers: Mussel, Marques, Williams PRELIMINARY SEASON Santa Clara 11, Muirson Labels 2 On Sunday afternoon, January 18th, the Santa Clara Varsity Baseball team took the field for the first time, facing the Muirson Label nine of San Jose. Randazzo lived up to his reputation as a hitter, crashing the apple to all corners of the lot. Wright and Campisi held the opposition well in hand by their masterful twirling. The team shaped up well after only three days of practice. Santa Clara 7, Garden City Billiards 5 Garden City Billiards went down before the Varsity in the second game, 7-5. Mollen went eight innings on the mound for the collegians and " Slim " Wright finished up the ninth. Heavy hitting on the part of the Broncs put the game on ice in the eighth. Santa Clara 2, Garden City Billiards 5 In the second of the three game series with the Garden City team the latter proved too much for the Broncs, winning 5 to 2. Heffner was most effective for the visitors, holding the collegians in check throughout the game. Mollen, Campisi and Storm worked on the mound for Santa Clara. Errors behind the good pitching of their men proved the downfall of th e Mission boys. Santa Clara 3, Olympic Club 5 The fast Olympic Club nine of San Francisco came to the campus to meet the Varsity. " Slim " Wright was in rare form and held the slug- gers of the Olympic Club team in check for seven innings. However, in the eighth Starasinich of the visitors caught one of " Slim ' s " fast ones on the nose and drove in four runs with the mighty blow. McKee seemed to like Clark ' s delivery, collecting two blows for himself. Santa Clara 2, San Jose Caseys 1 After 13 innings the Varsity took revenge for their defeat of the day previous by nosing out the KC nine of San Jose, 2 to 1.

The game was featured by the excel- lent twirling of " Tony " Campisi and the heavy hitting of Randazzo and Dagley. Santa Clara 3, Stanford 9 In the second game of the series the Cards came back strong and hit everything in sight. Wright was the victim, and Connie Storm relieved him in the fourth. The Crimson played errorless ball, hence the score. Santa Clara 6, Stanford 12 In the deciding game the Cards ' heavy gunners got the range of Cam- pisi in the first inning and amassed a lead of six runs. The Broncos man- aged in time to pile up six also, but Stanford meanwhile was not idle and the initial lead could not be overcome. " Slim " Wright finished the game on the mound in steady fashion. Santa Clara 9, California 10 Playing in the Memorial Stadium, the Broncos lost a hard fought battle to California. The lead see-sawed back and forth throughout the game but the Bears batted in three runs in the ninth and walked off with the honors. Gallagher, Storm and Wright worked for the locals.

St. Mary ' s 10, Santa Clara 2 Terrific slugging in the early part of the game by the Saints gave them a lead which the Broncos never even threatened. Singles and doubles came with clock-like regularity and Wright was driven from the mound, to be replaced by Storm, who had a little better success in holding the score down. In the meanwhile King, St. Mary ' s southpaw ace, had the Red and White baffled, yielding only five hits throughout the entire game.

When the late Walter Camp paid his visit to California last fall he was fairly astounded at the magnificent display in the rooting sections at the Big Game and the Little Big Game. Apparently bleacher stunts are little indulged in back East, whereas in this part of the world there is scarcely less rivalry between the two teams that do battle on the field than there is between the opposing rooting sections. Mr. Camp complained that a bit too much attention was paid here to organized rooting and rooting stunts, but few Calif ornians would agree with him. The stunts are always put on between the halves and hence far from distracting the spectators ' attention from the game, offer an extremely pleasant diversion at the time it is most needed; while there is nothing that puts more fight into the team than the organized rooting of a loyal student body led by com- petent cheer leaders. That it is very effective may be gathered from the players themselves, and especially from their bitter complaints in case it should be omitted or prove half-hearted. Santa Clara ' s yell leaders need no forced superlatives to praise their efforts. This is the second successive year that Bill Lange has been chosen by the students as Chief of the Noise, and that fact alone is suffi- cient warrant for his ability. Bill was never satisfied with merely cling- ing to the past in the line of yells or stunts. He was always on the alert for something new, and the new things were practised diligently under his capable leadership until they were perfectly mastered. It is no easy (Continued on page 194) 153 BLOCK LETTER SOCIETY This society was recently organized with " Moose " Fawke as president. Outstanding competition in the three major sports, baseball, basket- ball and football, is rewarded by a sweater with the block letter emblem of the university. The requirements for an emblem are as follows: members of the foot- ball teams must engage in three-fifths of the whole number of quarters of the collegiate games played during the season ; members of the basket- ball teams must play in three-fourths of the number of halves of the col- legiate games; and members of the baseball team must play in three- fourths of all the innings of the collegiate games. However, a pitcher is entitled to a " Block " if he pitches one full collegiate game. The coach in each sport determines which games are collegiate and which are practice games, and any fraction of a quarter, half or inning counts for a whole one. The sweaters are a mark of distinction on the campus and are prized very highly by all those who are fortunate enough to earn one. It is the ambition of every student to have a " Block, " and the prospect of winning one is a great incentive for all athletically inclined to go out for at least one sport and try to make the varsity team. An exceptional reward is given to those who earn a block for four years in the same sport. It is a white sweater with a small " S. C. " and four stars. Needless to say, this is the most coveted of all athletic honors at Santa Clara. 154 {Eije JHomF of J gptrtitg outl} 157 P tna JSall The Preparatory Department this year has finally come into its own. Housed in a beautiful modern building, its standard has risen with the in- terest bestowed on it. The hopes and expectations of which it has been the object have more than been fulfilled. It is with a feeling of pride, there- fore, that we speak of Kenna Hall. When its erection was first conceived, there was question of a name. Junior Hall suggested itself, but on further consideration it was decided to call it Kenna Hall, in honor of Reverend Robert E. Kenna, S. J., one of the best known presidents of former years. Father Kenna was a strong, like- able character, who won the love of his boys so that even yet his memory lives in the minds of his old students. He himself had studied at Santa Clara and twice as President, labored in the shadow of the Old Mission. The building is beautiful in itself and thoroughly modern. Situated on the southeast corner of the campus, the rays of the morning sun are the first to meet it ; those of evening, the last to leave it. The atmosphere and surroundings are inspiring. The Old Mission, the gardens, the soil itself trodden by the early neophytes, give it a beauty that is even more felt than seen. Kenna Hall is a fitting tribute to the man in whose honor it has been named, and the good effected in it has added to his glory. In the past the Preparatory Department was hampered by inadequate equipme nt. Then, too, its affairs were handled in connection with those of the University departments. It was difficult, consequently, for the high school to receive the attention it required. The faculty realizing this fact, instituted Kenna Hall, as an entirely separate and complete unit. The af- fairs of the High School are now entirely under the management of a special principal, and it has a separate and independent faculty. The new system has already proved its advantages. The quality of the work done by the students in their new quarters has improved by leaps and bounds, so that now the Santa Clara Preparatory Department can rank with the leading schools of its kind in the state. 159 160 Jfourtlj grtglf It is with a measure of regret that the Prep class of ' 25 are leaving Santa Clara, perhaps never more to meet. The associations and friend- ships which many of us have fostered during the past four years must bear the strain of separation. Never again shall we gather together as a class. Yet through the mist of sadness there breaks a flood of happy memories to light up the past, and bind us closer to one another and to all that we hold dear. Our hearts swell with pride when we realize what our class has achieved during the years that have passed, and especially during this, our last year. Representatives of fourth high were quite prominent in the Dra- matic Art Contest, in the persons of Samuel Matthews, Edward Stretch, and Thomas Woodley. The latter carried off first honors, and was re- warded with the important role of Flavius in the Light Eternal. In the Vaudeville Show, Eugene Mallory, Edward Stretch, Hayden Vachon , and Samuel Matthews were able representatives. Hayden Vachon, Edward Stretch, Thomas Keegan, and Francis Cox were chosen members of the staff of the " Santa Clara " . The last named of this quar- tette, and Joseph Donnelly, were appointed representatives of the Pre- paratory Department on the " Redwood " . In the Annual Elocution Contest the banner of the Fourth High was nobly carried by Edward Stretch, Thomas Woodley, Charles Beguhl, John Casey and Francis Cox. In the hands of Francis Cox it advanced to second place. In the Junior Dramatic Society, we were so well repre- sented that all but six of the active members belonged. The officers were John Casey, Vice-president; Thomas Keegan, Secretary; Francis Corda, Treasurer; and Samuel Matthews, Sergeant-at-arms. Throughout the football season, Fourth High gave its best. Out of a squad of eighteen, eleven was our quota, while in basketball we al- most monopolized the squad. The remarkable playing of Beguhl and Donnelly brought new laurels to the class. Nor must we forget the prominence of our members in the Student Body of the Preparatory Department. John Casey was President, and Joseph Donnelly, Sergeant-at-arms. In the Junior Sodality Thomas Woodley was honored with the office of Prefect; Francis Cox became First Assistant; John Casey, Second Assistant; and Frank Corda, Secretary. Much more could be said but let these few words suffice. The class that is to graduate this year has always had " Loyalty to Alma Mater " as its watchword. It has done its duty well, and this is everything. Let what it has accomplished be its memorial. As we pass forth into a new world where we shall make new friends, the remembrances of the past will bind us to the old. 161 ... : - CASEY DONNELLY MR. MAGINNIS, S. J. FATJO PREP STUDENT BODY The affairs of the Prep Student Body of 1924-25 are over and we are happy to say successfully. It has been an efficient organization, has run very smoothly during the whole year, and deserves much credit. Since the separation of the activities of the Preparatory Department and the College the activities of the Prep Student Body have increased greatly. The very first meeting gave birth to a new enthusiasm which has grown steadily throughout the year. A spirit of true sportsmanship and loyalty to the Prep teams has greatly aided the Department in its efforts. The ordinary meetings of the organization were held on the second Tuesday of each month, when new questions were brought up and dis- cussed. The different rallies held from time to time stimulated " pep " and aroused interest among the students. Much credit is due the officers for the splendid manner in which they discharged their duties, for it is through their efiorts mainly that so much progress has been made. The members of the organization are also to be highly complimented for their whole-souled cooperation. 162 ®be Elocution (Eotttest The annual Elocution Contest in the Preparatory Department was held on March 3, 1925. The competition for the prizes was especially keen. John P. McEnery won first honors, giving a beautiful rendition of " The Old Surgeon ' s Story. " His theme was of the sorrow and remorse of a young Union soldier of the Civil War, who had killed his brother in battle. The boy is telling the story to his mother; and the masterful manner in which Mr. McEnery expressed the feelings of pathos and re- morse held the audience spellbound to the end. It was a wonderful rendi- tion and decidedly deserved the winner ' s prize. The second prize was awarded to Francis J. Cox, who presented " The Soldier of Fortune. " The scene of the story is laid in the wilds of Africa. A band of wanderers had been captured bv a savage tribe and all but one slain. One way alone could save the life of the survivor, the denial of his God. He refuses to take it and offers his life for his faith and honor. The rest of the programme was highly interesting. In fact the con- test was one of the best that has been held for years. John J. Casey made a hit in " Jean Deprez " , the story of a young French lad, who gave his life for France. The piece was well rendered. Thomas Woodley did well in " Young Fellow My Lad " , a story of the late war, in which a youth of seventeen years goes off to France never to return. The sorrow and grief of his aged father are solaced by the thought of the glorious death of his son. Edward M. Stretch gave " The Stranger ' s Evidence " , in creditable style. The piece dealt with the evidence given before a coroner ' s jury, by an old friend of the deceased. The old story of two pals fighting over a card game; of a shot; of remorse on the one side and forgiveness on the other, is set forth in a new and interesting way. Charles Beguhl rendered " The Level Crossing " , a touching tale of a drunkard, who made the supreme sacrifice for the sake of a baby girl. The pathos of the story was well brought out by the speaker. Salvador Sanfilippo gave " The Dukite Snake " . The scene of the story is the wilds of Canada. A young farmer had killed a Dukite snake. Un- fortunately he brought the dead reptile home. Its mate followed and in revenge killed the young man ' s wife and baby daughter. Driven by de- spair and grief to the verge of insanity, he spends the rest of his life in warring upon the tribe. " Bernardo del Carpio " , a tale of old Spain, was rendered by Andrew J. Brennan. The story deals with the cruelty of a Spanish King towards one of his generals. " The Legend of the Organ Builder " , a tale of the Renaissance, was chosen by Joseph McDonald. A youthful master built a marvelous organ which automatically played the most angelic music. On his wedding day, proud and boastful of his work, the young man forgot his God. As 163 164 Attaining its fifty-first anniversary, the Junior Dramatic Society has lived up to its glorious record, and successfully completed another school year. Under the able direction of Mr. William L. Davis, S. J., all of its undertakings met with deserved success. At the very first meeting, zeal and interest in the work of the society were so stirred up that they contin- ued unabated throughout the scholastic year. Unfortunately Mr. Davis was stricken with appendicitis during the Christmas holidays and hence was unable to continue as president of the society. His position, however, was taken by Mr. James Donohue, S. J., who proved a very able successor. Many interesting debates were held, and the ease and facility with which the speakers handled their subjects spoke well for their training. The young debaters have profited much during the past year, and the lessons which they have learned will stand them in good stead in years to come. A dual debate was held with the St. Ignatius House of Philhistorians, in the late fall. It was of a public character and though St. Ignatius won the decision in both, the experience gained by the debaters was most profitable. In San Francisco, the decision against the Junior Dramatic Society was unanimous. At Santa Clara, however, it was two to one in favor of St. Ignatius. The boys from Santa Clara made a favorable showing, but they had to bow to a more experienced array of debaters. Everybody received a chance to speak at one time or another, and soon each individual was able to stand up and express his thoughts with- out embarassment. A very good system has been followed whereby a member, even if he is not on the debating team proper, is allowed a few minutes to give expression to his thoughts. This so called " Open House " has proved to be one of the most popular features of the meetings. The boys seem to take an interest in the subject, when they are allowed to give their personal opinions on it, and as a result this feature has become a permanency in the society. In brief the Junior Dramatic Society during the last year has met every just expectation. The reputation of past years has been sustained and more glory has been added, so that the society is justly considered one of the foremost on the campus. 165 THE THOMAS I. BERGIN DEBATING SOCIETY The Thomas I. Bergin Debating Society has ended another year. In its debates, its young orators have exhibited an intensity of feeling, as also a zeal and interest which will go far in making them accomplished speak- ers. The society is only in its second year, so that its success is all the more praiseworthy. Mr. Thos. Cosgrave, S. J., its moderator, has devoted to it much time and thought, and the members of the society, as a consequence, have pro- gressed rapidly in the art of debating. From the very start all were eager to learn, and where there are efforts there must be results. The subjects of debate were limited to problems concerning the school, and many interesting points were treated. It certainly augurs well for the future success of the J. D. S. that in due time it will recruit its members from debaters so excellently prepared. Its officers were Robert Fowler, Recording Secretary; Joseph Carew, Corresponding Secretary; Albert Zanetti, Historian; and Duncan Kratti- ger, Sergeant-at-arms. All have given their best efforts to the society, and it is gratifying to record that their sacrifices have not been in vain. 166 THE JUNIOR SODALITY The Junior Sodality was organized at the beginning of the scholastic year under the direction of Father Mootz, S. J. At the first meeting, the officers for the ensuing term were elected. Thomas F. Woodley was chosen Prefect, Francis J. Cox, Assistant Prefect; John J. Casey, also Assistant Prefect, and Frank Corda, Secretary. The Society, though it did not hold many meetings, exercised, nevertheless, a great influence over its members, and attained its primary purpose, namely the promotion of de- votion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. The example of the Sodality boys was edifying even to those who did not enjoy their privilege. The Junior Sodality deserves to be complimented on what it has done. Those who come after us would do well to follow in its footsteps. The progress which its members have made is in perfect accordance with the best traditions of the past. They have proved themselves a model group of boys, true Christians, and it is with a feeling of positive assurance that we say the seeds of piety now sown will produce abundant fruit in their future lives. 167 PREP GRID SEASON The 1924 Prep football season, all things considered, leaves little to regret. Under the circumstances, the record of four games won and four lost is remarkable. To begin with, it was almost an entirely new eleven. The 1924 graduation class had taken with it the entire line and almost the complete back field of last year and hence there was a great dearth of formed material to start with. Yet it must be said that be- fore the season was over, there was a real team in the field and to the coach primarily this feat is due. The first call was eagerly responded to by a number of young stal- warts, green but willing to learn. Practice was organized immediately under the Prep Coach, Sam Dagley. Sam, a former Pasadena Hi star, had served as backfield coach to the ' 23 eleven, and now took over the full responsibility. He was ably assisted by Mr. Maginnis, S. J., who gave much time and care to the improving of the squad. Much of the early work nec- essarily consisted in teaching and practicing the rudiments of the game. This over, the men were picked for the various positions, and the real problem of conditioning the team for the season was faced. The sched- ule was by no means an easy one, and condition was essential. So with this in view the boys were put through a grilling two-hour work-out every afternoon under the watchful supervision of their mentors. In the line there was the important position of center to be filled and several men were tried. Guy Stockton, Bob Thompson, and Frank Briz- 168 zolara in turn were given a trial, and finally " Brizz " earned the coveted honor. His huge size and native ability made up for lack of experience. After considerable shifting, the guard positions were filled by Ru- pert Moore and Mort. Wainwright. The important tackle berths were taken care of by " Doc " Reckers and " Kewpie " Farrington, both beefy and well fitted for their duties. It is a credit to the coaches that the Preps were favored with such stellar ends as they were developed entirely from inexperienced material. Bob Holstein had never touched a football before coming to S. C, but no one who watched him play will easily believe the fact. Bob was a deadly tackier, a powerful interferer, fast on punts, and a good receiver of passes. His work earned him the captaincy of the 1925 eleven. His running mate was either Bill Pabst, " Red " Fitzgerald, or Mort. Wain- wright when he was not playing guard. Among the backfield candidates, the only men with experience were Capt. Johnny Morey and Donnelly. Morey was unfortunate in suffer- ing a severe injury to his foot in the first game of the season. This kept him out of several games and impaired his efficiency somewhat when able to play. Nevertheless he was a consistent ground-gainer and a model captain. With Johnny filling one of the half-back berths, the other was turned over to Harry Grace, a fast, shifty runner and a fine offensive player. Of course every team must have its reserve half-backs. Gene Mal- lory, Frank Morey and " Dutch " Beguhl were the ones selected who saw action in every contest. Many times they were called into the game and it must be said to their credit that they responded well. A good quarterback can make even a middling eleven look much better than it really is. John Casey certainly added tone to the team. John called the signals and directed play on the field. Although he had been a halfback on the Midget team, no one expected him to shine as he did. Cool-headed and observant, Casey proved himself the man for the position. The position of full-back was filled by Donnelly. The first game, which was with St. Ignatius Hi of San Francisco, found the boys eagerly awaiting the opening kick-off. The contest was hard fought, every yard gained by either side was well earned. The final score was Preps 7, St. Ignatius 2. The Ignatians had scored two points on a safety in the first half, and so had a slight advantage even when the third quarter ' s play was resumed. Now however the Preps opened up with line plunging and in a short time had a touchdown, which was duly converted. Fumbles on the part of the Preps lost several scoring opportunities, so we had to be content with the one touchdown and the extra point. Unfortunately in this game Capt. Johnny Morey received a painful injury to one of his ankles. This was indeed a blow to the team for John is a most reliable ball carrier and his presence on the field helped the team immeasurably. 169 The next game was with Polytechnic Hi, also of San Francisco. It was played on Ewing Field in that city, and turned out to be a crush- ing defeat for the Preps. The final score was 34 to 0. It must be re- membered, however, that Poly was the S. F. A. L. champion last year, and rated as the second best high school team in the State. The Preps, several of whom besides Morey were not in good condition, were unable to break up the fast plays of the men from Poly, or gain consistently against them. Though outclassed our team fought valiantly to the end. No more can be required of any team. The defeat by Poly stirred the team to new efforts. Its members got down to hard work and during the next week, practiced diligently. A new half-back set about getting into condition for the Commerce game which was approaching. The High School of Commerce of San Fran- cisco had furnished hard competition to our men in previous years. They had beaten the Preps 7 to in 1922; in ' 23 the Preps returned the comp- liment by a 12 to victory; so this year ' s game was regarded as of no little importance by the student bodies of the two schools. The teams put up a spirited fight from start to finish, and the final score was Preps 7, Commerce 0. The touchdown resulted from a criss-cross play on the thirty yard line, and McKee carried the ball over. The following week the team journeyed to Stockton and took on the fast high school eleven of that city. Fast it was and powerful and our boys were unable either to hold the heavy line or thwart the backs. The score 19 to in favor of our opponents, does not tell of the fighting spirit which the Preps displayed nor of the occasions when they showed brilliant flashes of power and dash. But the attack was not sustained sufficiently to bring the desired results, and we had to be content with the score. The Stockton team went well into the semi-finals for the State championship before they were eliminated. The next game was with Hollister and when it was over the score stood 17 for Hollister and for the Preps. We must say, however, that the Preps were denied a touchdown by an unfortunate decision, and penalties heaped upon us at critical moments helped to roll up the points for our opponents. The wonder is that the score wasn ' t 50 to 0, consid- ering the referee ' s generosity to Hollister. The following Saturday found the Preps in fine condition, and play- ing host to Gilroy ' s high school football team. The game was evenly fought during the first half, and no score registered on either side. The third quarter, however, found the Preps on the war-path and pushing an offensive that could not be stopped. A series of line plunges and runs soon netted the first touchdown, and this with the extra point gave us 7 to 0. The preps elated came right back after the kick-off and started in to increase the score. Harry Grace was fast and hard to stop. The line showed remarkable strength, and Farrington was a revelation at running interference for the backs. A few passes, runs and plunges (Continued on page 216) 170 9 , ' ' • a f Iff ; 1 r l I f v v «%ia 2-3 ! v; MIDGET FOOTBALL The 1924 Prep lightweight football team, known as the Midgets, lived up to their tradition as a smart, well-coached eleven. They played every game with spirit and put up a quality of fight seldom found in a team of their size. Coach Cliff Gottwals, who was in charge of the players, is to be complimented on the splendid morale and prowess of the team. The call of the wild — for football is the child of primitive emotions — brought forth a goodly number of young athletes. The personnel con- sisted of Solomon, Barrios, Kelly, McDonnell, Hall, Morey, Rains, Ca- purro, Zanetti, Pimentel, Shaw, Kellar, De Maria, Byrne, Ingram, Culli- nan, Cerrutti, Stephani, and King. From this squad Coach Gottwals picked his men. Competition for places was close and all the men saw action at some time or other during the season. In the opening game the Midgets met Santa Clara Public High, a regulation high school team. Greatly outweighed and lacking experience, the little Broncos suffered a 15 to defeat. Still they showed to no mean advantage and the game they put up was praiseworthy. After a week of further practice, our young gridmen journeyed to Hollister to do battle with the Hollister lightweights. The game was hard- 171 fought, and neither side could gain any material advantage. The result was a to tie. The Midgets were improving and co-operation was more evident in both offense and defense. The next encounter was with Seale Academy, and the Santa Clara boys scored a 31 to 6 victory. Half-back Pimentel was credited with two touchdowns. Mark Kelly caught a pass and ran for another; young Ingram added six more points when he crossed the Seale goal for the final tally. Captain Joe Solomon did the converting, and played a stellar game at quarterback. The line played well, and the backfield functioned in like manner. Once again the Midgets opposed the Santa Clara High team, and this time the game was closer. The High School won 12 to 0, yet the improvement showed by the Midgets since the first game was greater than indicated by the three point difference in the two scores. Solomon displayed some shifty running and gained much yardage. The line again stood up nobly against their heavier opponents. Following another week of strenuous practice, the Midgets once more engaged in combat with the Public High School team. This time the game was scoreless, to 0. This clear and rapid improvement is certainly worthy of high praise. The results of good coaching and con- scientious response were manifested and were highly gratifying to the young gridders and their friends. Solomon and Joe Morey in the back- field did excellent work. It would be difficult to pick a favorite in the line, for all worked in unison, as is proper, and presented a stone wall to the enemy. The little, little-big game between the Santa Clara and St. Mary ' s Midgets was played in San Francisco. It was crowded with thrills and daring plays. St. Mary ' s won, however, by six points. Our boys gained many yards but did not succeed in crossing the goal line. Joe Solomon managed the team well and executed some pretty broken-field runs. It was the best game of the season. Thus was written finis to the combats of 1924. Those who earned letters were Captain Solomon, at quarterback; Kelly, end; Capurro and Zanetti, tackles; Rains and Hall, guards; and McDonnell and Cullinan, centers ; Barrios and Pimentel, halfbacks ; and Joe Morey at fullback. Coach Gottwals deserves praise for his success in teaching the rudiments of the game to these young hopefuls, and the players themselves are to be commended for their unfailing respons- iveness. 172 PREP BASKETBALL Official practice for the 1925 Prep basketball season commenced im- mediately after the mid-year vacation. Great interest was displayed from the outset, and a large squad reported for practice. The team was coached by George Malley, star varsity player, and his efforts were sup- plemented by those of his assistant, " Bud " McKee. They imparted to the young athletes much of their knowledge of the game and instilled into them the proper spirit of fight. The squad carried through the season was composed of Fatjo, Kelly, Casey, and Monteverde, forwards; Moore and Beguhl, centers; and Cox, Smith, Bricca, and Donnelly, guards. The team lost the services of a valuable player, Grace, when he was declared ineligible soon after the season began. In the opening game the Preps scored an 18 to 12 victory over the St. Joseph ' s High School. The contest was evenly waged until near the end of the last half. Then the Preps netted six points in quick suc- cession to clinch the victory. Beguhl and Casey were the chief scorers, though the entire team worked as a unit. After a few days of further practice the Preps engaged the team from Monterey High. These opponents were heavy and rangy, and had won several games in their vicinity, so that much interest was taken in 173 the result of the struggle. The Preps displayed a bewildering offensive and were rewarded with a 20 to 5 score in their favor. Beguhl, Moore and Cox showed up well for us. The Monterey boys were outplayed in every department. Next followed a return game with St. Joseph ' s. Lacking their two regular forwards, Casey and Beguhl, the Preps met defeat, 15 to 14. The team, however, played well, and Monteverde gathered in his share of points, but the St. Joseph ' s boys managed to sink the winning score just before the whistle blew. The Preps next lost a two game series to St. Ignatius High School of San Francisco. This team was experienced and composed of stars who formed a combination altogether too powerful for the locals. The score of the first game was 26 to 11 and that of the second was 26 to 13. While our men played good basketball, they were excelled in pass- ing and shooting. Fat jo and Cox showed their usual form in both games. The team journeyed down to Gonzales for their next engagement, and after a hotly contested battle won by a 17 to 13 score. While the win was decisive it does not show how well our boys played. The Gon- zales team used a man-for-man defense which was well executed and kept the score down. Monteverde and Cox showed to advantage and Casey was greatly in evidence with his floor work. The following week saw Hollister as the battle ground. The game was fast and furious throughout. In the absence of " Dutch " Beguhl, who was sick, the Preps presented a much impaired line-up. The Hol- lister men rang in ten points in the first half while our men garnered just two. Beginning in the third quarter, however, the Preps opened up a dazzling offense which set Hollister running around aimlessly. Rup. Moore, the center, was high scorer with eight points to his credit. Bob Fatjo shone with his floor play. Casey and Monteverde also were in- strumental in this glorious finish. The result was that the Preps snatched away a 20 to 17 victory, one which they merited by their re- markable comeback. In the ensuing contest with the St. Mary ' s Preps our team, though they lost, put up a splendid game and displayed courage of the highest order. Throughout the entire first half our opponents rang basket after basket, while we were faring badly in stopping attacks. The re- sult was that St. Mary ' s led by a 25 to 7 score at half time. Undaunted, the Preps opened up a fiery attack as soon as the game was resumed. " Dutch " Beguhl shot many points and aided and abetted by Fatjo, Moore and the others, all but brought home a victory. The Santa Clara boys scored 15 points in the second half while our rivals secured but 6. As time grew short our men were running their opponents off their feet but the timekeeper stopped the bombardment with the final score read- ing St. Mary ' s 32, Santa Clara 22. Beguhl and Cox starred for the Preps. After a few days of strenuous practice the Preps encountered the (Continued on page 212) 174 MIDGET BASKETBALL The 1925 Midget basketball team easily equalled any of its prede- cessors. It was composed of clever players who worked intelligently together. They were fortunate in being coached by Mr. Cosgrave, S. J., who proved himself a competent instructor. Solomon and Bondi at forwards, shone in every contest by their floor work and their scoring ability. Frank Ruettgers played center and was always in the right place at the right moment. Capt. Al Ruett- gers starred as running guard. He developed into a frequent scorer, and in defense displayed uncommon ability. Hibbard did well as the other guard. The reserves were Jennings, Krattiger and Carew, all of whom could be depended on as occasion arose. After several practice skirmishes, the lightweights were ready for their interscholastic season. The first clash was with the St. Joseph ' s High 130 lb. team. We won by a 25 to 14 score. Shortly afterwards the same teams met in a return contest and again Santa Clara won. The game was more even this time, and each 17! side showed marked improvement. The final score was Santa Clara 13, St. Joseph ' s 8. Ruettgers and Hibbard showed well in the defense. Next came the San Jose High " Outlaws " and they proved to be bet- ter than the average local 130 pounders, as their record shows. How- ever, after a hard struggle, the Midgets came out ahead by a one point margin, the score being 19 to 18. Solomon and Bondi starred, and the remaining trio played in splendid style. In the last game of the season the Midgets lost to Campbell Light- weights by a 26 to 24 score. The game was in the balance up to the final whistle. The score was tied at the end of the first, second and third quarters. The entire team played well and showed up better than in any of the previous contests, but fortune is fickle and smiled on our op- ponents. Thus came to an end a successful though brief season, one of which we are reasonably proud. 110-LB. BASKETBALL A 110 pound team was also organized by Mr. Cosgrave. It was com- posed of Capt. Kellar, Devine, Vasconcellos, Dwyer, Kirk, and Day. The little fellows lost a series to the San Jose Y. M. C. A. quintet and won from the Santa Clara intermediate team, 12 to 8. The team was forced to relinquish further activity due to the lack of a court on which to practice. 176 Intramural Haseball Reason FINAL STANDING W. L. T. W. L. T. Yannigans 5 2 1.000 Bums 2 4 .333 Rookies 3 2 1 .600 Regulars 1 5 1 .167 An experiment was tried in Prep baseball this season. Owing to the difficulties attending outside competition, games with other Prep schools were called off. Clubs representing high schools in the vicinity were few and far between. Any kind of competition involved trips of consid- erable distance and this was a serious factor entering into the final de- cision. The outcome took the shape of intra-mural games, with indi- vidual prizes and " the best banquet Jerry ever cooked " as an incentive for enthusiasm. That the experiment was a success can be little doubted. Violets whose modesty had previously kept them near the ground shone as the stars in heaven . The usual number trying out for baseball was multi- plied about five times. Names whose mention will no doubt call for the applause of Caseys in the future were heard for the first time upon the diamond. The sidelines were well crowded with partisan spectators and in general baseball both inside and out became the talk about the gravel walks surrounding Kenna Hall. Four teams were drawn, each captained by a seasoned veteran. Owen led the Yannigans through an undefeated season. Although tied twice and forced to the limit by the keen and bitter competition, he managed to hold the lead by a narrow margin till the end. The success of the Yannigans was due in large measure to the hitting of Owen and Solomon, to the steady work of the battery, Donnelly and Wainwright, and lastly to the fielding of " Frenchy " Larrouy, who handled some thirty-five odd and sometimes difficult chances without an error. The most serious contender for the pennant, which in this case took the more material shape of a banquet, were the Rookies led by Johnny Morey. The hitting of the Skipper himself and the hooks of Bob Fatjo kept the league in doubt and forced two tie games to be played off before the final outcome was established. A series of unfortunate circumstances climaxed by the loss of their captain, landed the Bums in third place, while to professional jealousy among the star performers can be attributed the position occu- pied by Matt Susanj ' s regulars. Individual prizes were awarded to Owen who batted around the .600 mark; to Solomon who came second with an average of .463; to Larrouy who led the fielders with 1000 per cent; and to Johnny Morey, who at- tained the same average in the outfield with thirty-nine chances. Owen and Morey tied for base-stealnig honors with eleven each. Susanj ranked well up among the hitters and E. Sheridan ran Larrouy a close 177 race for fielding laurels, with but one error at shortstop for the season. These averages indicate the high standard of baseball that was maintained throughout the league and promise well for future varsities. Bill Dwyer was the official batboy, and to his uncanny watchfulness is due the fact that the league ' s equipment was preserved almost intact throughout the season. PREP MINOR SPORTS During the fail semester intramural competition took place in three minor sports, Tennis, under the able management of Thomas Keegan, Swimming under the efficient direction of Francis Cox, and Handball under the masterful guidance of Louis Capurro. Bob Fatjo enjoyed marked success in the tennis tournaments, winning the singles champ- ionship, and copping the doubles title along with Koehle. In the swimming meet the following were the results: Free style, length of tank: Bricca first, Jack Monteverde, second. Breast stroke, Virgil Breen first, Francis Cox second. Fancy diving: Monteverde first, Breen, second. Under water, width of tank: Briener first, Solomon second. Frank O ' Neill won the handball championship, and Roger Bondi fin- ished second. The winners and the runners-up in these various competitions were guests of the University at a delicious banquet which amply rewarded them for the long efforts they had expended in training for the champ- ionship competition. 178 JVn JVpprraaium IN THE NAME OF THE ASSOCIATED STUDENT BODY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF SANTA CLARA, THE ig 25 REDWOOD STAFF WISH TO EXPRESS THEIR THANKS TO THE FOLLOWING, WHOSE KIND CO-OPERATION HAS MADE THIS SOU- VENIR POSSIBLE: Imperial Cleaners Thos.

That the Hotel Whitcomb exceeds their expec- tations is proved by the fact that those who come once, return again and again.

Lowell Griffin, ' 25, did not swing into action this year till the basket- ball season began, but his efficient work made up for time lost. He has been a yell leader for the past two years, and his ability is such as to leave nothing to further be desired. Max Girard, though only a Freshman, won his spurs immediately by his clever work in the yell leaders ' try-outs. Max is no novice at the po- sition, either, as he has acted in a similar capacity at Lowell High School, San Francisco. He made a splendid running-mate for Lange, had plenty of novel ideas and a world of " pep. " He bids fair to develop into a marvel before graduation. Phone S.

" Jock " Moroney filled the utility role nicely. He was equally efficient in all positions. Five very capable outfielders who specialized in heavy hitting and fancy fielding kept their bats in our bags. Sam Dagley, the boy who " socks ' em, " cavorted in left field. Time and again Sam turned in spectacular catches and delighted in crashing out home runs, triples, doubles and singles, galore. But we lost Sam when we needed him most. Tom Randazzo, the little giant lefthander, when he wasn ' t picking high twisters off the centerfield fences, was scorching the bases or giving trouble to opposing fielders. Tom has always been a mighty asset in the field and at the bat. " Bud " McKee, who played right for a while and then succeeded Sam Dagley in left, had a fine season. Bud turned in many spectacular plays and was always a source of worry to opposing mounds- men. Butler, who filled in at right, played high class ball. It was his first year with the college club, he was a clever fielder, had a good arm, and was especially strong at the bat. The Finishing Touch!

In celebration of a year of earnest endeavor and gratifying achievement, the members and a large number of the Society ' s Alumni enjoyed the tempt- ing delicacies. Since the main business was to satiate a deep-seated and natural desire, the fulfillment of which had been long-deferred, the customary speeches were limited to a minimum. The University Syncopators supplied an abundance of song and dance numbers which were succeeded by a famous tenor and friend of the Society who captured the hearts of his hearers by the able rendition of operatic selections and popular ballads. The guest of honor then delivered the main oration of the evening and was loudly applauded. Rev. Father Maher and Dean Sullivan also spoke, m ingling, as was natural, commendation with advice. A.

PREF BASKETBALL— (Continued from page 174 Santa Clara Public High School quintet. Having defeated San Jose High and several other fairly strong teams, the Public High was gen- erally conceded the local championship. As a result a great spirit of rivalry existed. The game was hard and cleanly fought, and the Preps won 16 to 15. Bob Fatjo was much in evidence throughout, and he brought victory home with a long shot in the last minute of play. Casey and Cox figured prominently also, and the entire team played well. In what was the final game of the season, the Preps were nosed out of victory by St. Mary ' s, after a heart-rending struggle. The score read St. Mary ' s 17, Santa Clara 16. The score see-sawed back and forth, favoring each team alternately, and the outcome was in doubt to the end. At half time the Preps held a 6 to 5 lead. The pace throughout was the fastest exhibited in a high school game on the local court this year. In the second half each team continued to battle furiously. Fatjo, Cox and Monteverde showed exceptionally well for the Preps, and their work matched that of any of the St. Mary ' s stars. Thus closed the 1925 season. The team played the best aggrega- tions in their class in this part of the country, and enjoyed a very fair measure of success. The result was due in great part to their coaches, to whom thanks are gratefully rendered. To the Boys: Compliments of Frank C.

Back again came the Preps with more run- ning and bucking and the drive was renewed. Just before the final whistle John Casey broke loose and ran ten yards around end for the final touchdown. The extra point brought the score up to 20; Gilroy failed to score. Our deadly rivals, San Jose High, were next in line, and came over to annihilate us. Having at least a thousand in their student body, they were confident that their team was a great deal better than ours. Soon after the opening whistle Capt. Johnny Morey, back in harness, scored for the Preps on an end run, and the score remained unchanged throughout the first half. In the third quarter the Preps punted; San Jose ' s safety missed the kick and Rup Moore, the Prep guard, recov- ered on the run and continued on to San Jose ' s goal line forty yards ahead. This made the score 13 to in favor of Santa Clara. San Jose, by dint of a prolonged attack, finally made a touchdown and converted. The final score stood in favor of the Preps, 13 to 7. Finally the great day for the game with the St. Mary ' s Preps ar- rived. Smothered with an avalanche of runs, passes, and line plunges, the fighting Prep team suffered a 38 to defeat.

They had several men on their team who were selected for positions on the all-northern California eleven, and were indeed a strong aggregation, well-coached, heavy, and experienced. They worked with a drive and smash that were irresistible. Once only during the season had they tasted defeat, and that after a close struggle, by Berkeley, who later won the State championship. For the Preps it must be said that they fought hard, never lost heart, and played their best. They showed to advantage in the last quarter, when their forward passing attack was effective in gaining ground, but it never carried them to the coveted goal line. Johnny Morey was the chief star of the aggregation, but all his companions are deserving of praise. Such was the season of ' 24. It had its defeats and its victories, and the players benefitted by its lessons. We hope that coming years will bring us better fortune, but there is a feeling of satisfaction among the students and players that the best was made of a discouraging sit- uation. To Coach Sam Dagley and Mr. Maginnis, S. J., for their unsel- fish devotion in drilling the team, sufficient praise cannot be given. They did the unhoped for. They and we should rest contented.

Sept. 16th Now that meetings are in order it is not possible for us to continue our masterpiece without a few words of recognition of the fact that eloquence rent the air in large quantities on this night.

After the affair all hands adjourned to the Manor Battiel, where a pleasant seminar in Conflict of Laws was enjoyed by the happy gathering. Nov. 10th It has been said that " All that is full of holes is not Swiss cheese " ; hence old sweat shirts and ruined cords are no longer considered proper for visiting Santa Clarans.

We offer no alibis; we admit that the best team lost. The Seniors stole our signal, so we were forced to re- sort to a code of Swedish numbers, which embarrassed our own players much more than it did the opponents. But the Seniors know they were in a fight — not a football game. Nose guards, pigskins and all, we fought to the last ditch. Yes, there ' s where we played half the game, in fact both halves. Our quarterback was in- terned for the four periods on or behind our two yard line. No alibis, understand. The odds were simply against us. We had only thirteen men on the field, the other two having been declared ineligible for forgetting their brass knuckles. Most of those that played had forgotten their cleats and had to be content with ordinary baseball spikes. Our great fullback, " Myron " Brown, had been instructed to jump on the faces of the Seniors when thev were down, but they never were. Randazzo, our right halfback, was holding back his stuff for baseball. But the biggest disap- pointment was Marques. We did not think the Seniors would be able to see this elusive halfback, but the time we got the ball in the third quarter our field general after calling Marques signal couldn ' t see him either. Still we played the game fairly and squarely, having bribed the referee to do all the dirty work for us, but we found out afterwards that the Seniors had outbid us for his decisions. It might be well to mention here that one of our players forgot himself and turned a Senior ' s ankle. He was taken out of the game for this, as he had been sent in merely to break the man ' s leg. The aforementioned player later received due reward for his negligence when he broke his own neck in trying to get out of his jersey. The Seniors won on points — but then scores never tell the whole truth. We offer no alibis — all glory to the Class of ' 25. The future looks bright for us, though, for we shall have a veteran team next year, while the Seniors are expected to lose several of their men by examination. — T. T. WHY THE SENIORS WON: AN ALIBI To my mind the outstanding feature of the Seniors ' 24-0 win over their ancient rivals, the class of ' 26, was the remarkable speed and stamina dis- played by the victors. Every man on the team was in the pink of condition as a result of the strict enforcement of Doctor Bigler ' s course of training. The entire squad cut down to two packs of cigarettes a day for 48 hours prior to the fray. Each morning before the combat the 15 men could be seen sprinting to chapel at 6:10. No one who hoped to win his numeral dared eat any boiled whale, roast turkey, or limburger cheese. Such a strenuous program coupled with its rigid enforcement could not fail to bring about results. Added to Doc. Bigler who produced he-men, for the material we had Root Knocknee Fawke to inform this prime matter and give it life, brains and skill. His plays were a mystery to our opponents and his cunning use of Pat Battle, the dark horse, in the holes, proved too much for the Junior offensive to hope to overcome. Against such a formi- dable array what chance had a small army, let alone the collection of mere humans comprising the opposition? All glory to the class of ' 26, though, for its wonderful work in holding down the score to 24 points. —P. L. 2:i6 Felix It was a rainy night down the valley. At intervals lightning flashed and thunder roared. Under a hay-stack in the middle of Farmer Andre ' s field were gathered our little friends of the animal kingdom. Jimmy, the spectacled magpie, sat quietly on his two legs, seemingly watching through a small hole in the straw something which caused him to blink his eyes knowingly, and to register a look of satisfaction upon his weazened face. Around him were more of our friends, Pauiita, the singing sparrow; Beauty The Peacock, the most charming of the kingdom; Montessa the squirrel, and numerous others of our acquaintance. All wondered at Jim- my ' s silent but satisfied look. Presently Pauiita sang sweetly, " What seems to please you so greatly, my little friend? " Jimmy did not reply. His friends looked at one another, seeking answer to the question, but in vain. Then Beauty looked for the cause of the mag- pie ' s delight, but as had happened to the one before him, he was bewildered for he saw nothing. At that time Montessa was busy cracking a nut; it was the thousandth that day, and he surely looked it. After having eaten the kernel he looked up at Jimmy and said, " Please, dear friend, tell us what you see that gives you such great pleasure, and that causes us so much wonder. " " Well, " said Jimmy after a moment ' s pause, " I shall show you, but first I must tell you a story. " So he told them a long story, but our friends were not interested and soon after the story was finished they all were looking throught the hole in the straw, and smiles of satisfaction began to beam upon their faces also. There, could you believe it, they saw struggling, clawing, and fighting to get into the farmer ' s house out of the rain, the sworn enemy of the whole crowd— Felix the Cat ! — H. B. ' 27. An Animal We All Know Many of you little boys may not know that one of your youthful play- mates almost died of starvation once, four years ago. He is a quiet little lad, and that is why you never noticed that this awful calamity was pend- ing. He might even have sat next to one of you in class while the pangs of hunger were gnawing away in his tiny tummy, but still you did not learn of his awful plight, because he told it to only one person, the writer, who swore on a stack of Spanish dictionaries never to divulge the secret. But after four long years of keeping his oath, he can do it no longer. The tale is as follows: On this lad ' s first day at Santa Clara he went into the refectory with his check for pew rent safely stowed away in his pocket, and after grace was said he stood sheepishly beside the table for awhile and then walked outside. In the evening he came in for supper, and after grace, again stood beside the table for a few minutes gazing anxiously at the prefect, and then walked out again without taking a bite to eat. On the next day he stayed out of the refectory altogether, but I have heard that several times during the meal he sneaked up to the window and slyly peered in. What a hungry little boy he must have been as he watched all his little classmates come out of the refectory laughing and telling each other jokes they had read in the " Literary Digest " and " College Humor. " On the next day his queer actions resulted in his being called to the office. Little " Moose " Fawke, who by now had wilted away to a measly 225 pounds, was shy at first but after a few minutes he explained that on leav- ing home his auntie ' s parting words were " Always be sure your elders are seated before you sit down. " Moral: " When in Santa Clara, ray little friends, do as the Romans do. " — E. M. 237
